Needs Assessment Certificate

Identify individual and organizational performance needs to develop the most effective solutions.

Many race to create course materials and roll out initiatives without upfront analysis of what is driving the need or how to ensure results. In this highly practical course, you will learn a systematic approach for conducting your own assessment of the individual and organizational performance needs that drive requests for learning and development solutions. Identify individual or organizational needs prior to developing learning strategies through an ATD-exclusive needs assessment process, so you can be sure the programs you develop will be effective.

The Needs Assessment Certificate will take place on May 17-18, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.
