  2. Provides a systematic approach for conducting an effective Training Needs Analysis.
  3. Provides a TNA template to document training and development needs during performance appraisal.


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.

In this training powerpoint, you will learn the meaning and importance of conducting a TNA, understand the key components of a TNA, and acquire detailed knowledge on the nine-step process for conducting a TNA.

Note: This presentation comes with a complimentary TNA template (supplemental document) for the documentation of training and development needs during performance appraisal.
