What is Training Needs Analysis (TNA) ?
The term ‘Training Needs Analysis’ or ‘TNA’ refers to the process of understanding the needs of the staff members of an organization and training them accordingly in order to help them perform their duties effectively and efficiently.
TNA can be conducted on the organizational level, the team level or on an individual basis. However, in order to receive maximum ROI from the TNA, it is better to conduct TNA on all three aforementioned levels.
TNA also helps in understanding the training format to be applied to ensure that the training is effective for the staff members as it takes into consideration their individual preferences too. It might include different methods such as SWOT analysis, one on one interviews and planning SMART objectives.
