Training Needs Analysis (TNA) is the foundation of a learning or training process. The deliverables of TNA are the building blocks for all subsequent Training Design and Development activities.
The TNA is performed to see if a learning or training solution will solve a business problem. Organisations and managers will often call a performance problem a training problem. Therefore, you must ensure that a learning or training solution will fix the problem or if a different performance solution is required.
The TNA helps identify:
The desired business need or result.
If a learning process will fulfil the desired business need.
Performance requirements that supports desired business outcome.
What must be learned.
The standards of performance.
How the learning process will occur.
Who needs to improve their performance.
