Training Needs Analysis

By graham.moody ·
I have recently designed a training needs analysis for Windows Apps for use within our company. It is basically a questionnaire where users rate their expertise on certain tasks. My boss wants me to use this to test the ability of staff across our company (150 people).

I am new in this role and am unsure about the best way to use the results of this assessment to form the basis of a IT training strategy. I know this is open-ended but does anyone have suggestions on where to start?

Thanks

After collating your data you will need to investigate the key weaknesses. A majority of people can't do ?. They also can't do ?. You than need to look at what training is avaiable in your area and what content will it deliver. You will also ned to take into account the amount of use that they "Don't knows" fit in, You don't want to send everyone out on trainging for software they use once a week when there daily task skills could be improved. Of the tasks they have been asked to rate themselves on you need to rate the importance of the task.

After determining the areas of needed training, decisions must be made on what type of training can be implemented - i.e., individual vs. group, in-house vs. outsourced vs. web-based. Cost and immediacy are two of the factors to consider. Also, is there corporate standards for the software, or is everyone using whatever happens to be installed on their machines? Standardizing applications narrows down needed training.
