Many training programmes are embarked upon without an objective assessment of training needs. This reduces training to a mere theoretical exercise and creates a gap between organizational needs and what is offered. Prior identification and analysis of training needs enable the development of relevant programmes targeted at bridging existing capacity gaps of the organization’s workforce with relevant skills and competence required for optimal performance. It is necessary therefore to evolve and use proven tools, skills and methods for analysis, design and delivery of training interventions that are learners-centred.
