Training Needs Analysis
The Training Needs Analysis should be the first phase in every training cycle.

Without a thorough understanding of the training needs of the customer and the goals that he would like to reach, the success of the training is put at risk. Therefore, the only way to guarantee a successful training is to define a training program that allows filling the gap between what one masters now; and what one needs to master to perform well in the future.

A sound assessment provides us with all information needed to define an adequate and specific training curriculum: contents and duration of the different courses are related not only to the objectives of the project, but also to the experience and background of the different users.

In close collaboration with your team, the training is tuned to the business and project context, to the different user profiles and skill levels.

Do not hesitate to contact the training team for more detailed information.
