    Topic: One Day Workshop - Needs Assessment for Organizational Success

    Start Time: 8:00 a.m.

    End Time: 5:00 p.m.


    Workshop Overview:

    Needs assessment guru Roger Kaufman will present the 4 tiers of needs assessment, as detailed in their latest book Needs Assessment for Organizational Success (ASTD Press, 2013).
    As the authors state, "Analysis is important and useful only if you have evidence that what you are dealing with is the actual problem. Otherwise, you might think you are dealing with the actual problem, when in fact you are merely dealing with a symptom. The consequence is moving ahead, only to find that you implemented useless and expensive cures."

    In this workshop you will learn what is meant by Mega, Macro, and Micro needs assessments, and discover how to put an ounce of good assessment to work for your organization.

    How do performance improvement–oriented organizations ensure that their approach is a sure bet and not a gamble?  This evening session will show us that the human performance technology (HPT) model is comprehensive and process oriented. 


    This skill development session is designed to enhance performance practitioners’ ability to systematically and systemically apply HPT principles to resolve a case study situation. Discussion of the model and the case will enable participants to realize the extraordinary value of performance technology. After attending this session, participants will be able to:

    • Identify major phases of the HPT model.   
    • Value the innovations in the new model.
    • Discuss a case study that applies the phases of the model.
