For the Minipaper, describing the status of your needs assessments efforts for your Course Project. The paper should incorporate concepts discussed in the text, articles, case studies, and discussions, and it should describe the methods and processes being utilized to gather the information. The paper should include information regarding the three levels of analysis (individual, task, organization) and should also discuss any difficulties experienced in getting the data. You should also discuss your initial insights regarding the data and your thoughts about a training intervention that could be pursued as a result of these data.
Analyze the data you have collected and identify one or more training needs for the organization. Be sure to fully justify your recommendations and link your recommendations to the organization’s business goals.
The data collected must be viewed in terms of the initial intent of the project. Care must be taken to evaluate the data for what they portray. Insufficient analysis or understanding of data, as well as reading more into data than what they actually portray, are equally ineffective activities.
