Assignment 2: Training Needs Assessment, part 2.
Assignment 2: Determine Training Outcomes (25% of grade)
Use the TNA to identify performance gaps and to establish specific training outcomes. This assignment builds on the previous one and will complete your TNA. Use at least three classroom resources in this assignment.
For this assignment, you will work on items 6 – 8 only (below)
NOTE: you will include a summary of assignment one as the intro!
6. Include at least three training outcomes, based on the TNA
Think of training outcomes in a larger context: how will the training solve the problem (or, address the need) at an organizational level? Think of this as a justification for your training. How you would “sell” the training to the organization’s leadership team. Why should they invest in the training. What’s in it for them (AKA, the organization)?
Remember, this should be as tangible as possible!
7. Identify the expected performance of the group or individuals as a result of the training
This is where you will focus more on the individual level. Think in terms of learning objectives. As a result of the training, what will the target audience do (or not do) that will improve their performance?
8. Identify performance gaps and detail how training can help close those gaps
Here you will essentially validate your proposed training . What performance gaps (or needs) is the training intended to address and how do your training recommendations achieve this? There needs to be a clear connection between what you are proposing and what you are trying to address.
