A needs analysis provides value to organizations by providing a structured rationale to improve their current situation. Conducting a needs analysis will help determine the difference between the way things are and the way they should be. Stages in a needs analysis typically involve determining the facts about the current situation and identifying areas for possible improvement; gathering quantitative and qualitative data that will help identify those needs; and making a plan to address the needs identified. In this course, students will apply the process and steps required in the design of a needs analysis based upon a selected situation and propose an applicable solution to address the identified needs.
