Training Needs Identification (TNI) is a systematic process of collecting individual training requirements of employees from the perspective of the Organization (its Vision and Goals), SBU (its business context and Training requirements), Department (for changes along technology, process or statutory requirements), and Individual (his/her development needs, growth aspirations).
Over 50% of the Organizations say that Training does not give them the results that they had hoped – and the reasons are not far to see. Most of these organizations do not perform a structured Training Needs Identification and Analysis – and the consequence map goes as follows:
Client : One of the leading thermal Power producers in the country with plants spread across the length and breadth of the country.
The Requirement: Understand the Training Needs of the employees in the executive cadre. Since many of the employees were based in plants and had difificulty in accessing IT systems, it was required that a ‘mixed model’ consisting of IT system and human interfacing should be carried out. The total number to be covered were close to 4,000 employees reporting to over 380 managers. All of this was to be completed in under 4 weeks.
UniTol’s Service : UniTol configured its IT platform, www.L-Kurve.com and deployed a team of specialists to interact with client side managers.
Results: Over 92% of the employees were covered in the stipulated time and the training needs analysis was presented to enable actioninzing for the year ahead.
