Training Needs Analysis (TNA)


Training Needs Analysis (TNA) is not a compilation of employees' training wants. Neither is it simply talking to a few supervisors or circulating a memo to supervisors asking them to rank the courses from a list provided.


To be effective, a TNA has to address business needs and close performance gaps. With the right approach and understanding, you will be able to conduct an effective TNA that ensures training is targeted at the right competencies, the right employees and is addressing a business need.
