Training Needs Analysis
Achieving digital literacy for most organisations is going to be a large investment and that invesment needs to be focused to where it can gain the best results.
As Ripped Orange are Organisational Training and Development and ICT specialists we deliver a full range of training needs analysis services.
Each of our analyses can be completed as standalone activities, or brought together as a part of a cohesive plan.
Training is not always the right solution to the business problem. With the Training Suitability Analysis we are looking at why the organisation is considering training as a resolution for an identified ICT business problem; we want to know if a skill change will resolve the issue in the right and most cost effective way for the organisation.
Successful organisationally focused training must consider the policies, procedures, culture and strategy of the organisation. Too many times training is taken “off the shelf” without quality consideration being given to the specific content of the company investing in the training; a band aid solution. The Ripped Orange Content Analysis ensures your company’s policies and procedures are introduced to the training. This approach is able to assist an organisation mitigating risk, for example, breaches of use of ICT tools.
A context analysis looks at the history and attitudes of the organisation to training and the impact that may have on any planned training courses or programmes. This ensures training is planned and pitched the right way to achieve the desired shift in culture, behaviour and skills that must be considered the success measures for the investment.
Did you know that training should cost less than the gains it provides to the business? The right training solution will achieve just that. At Ripped Orange we appreciate training ROI will have elements of subjectivity but we can get it pretty close these days, we have had lots of practice and lots of examples that have been incorporated into our ROI models.
A Work Analysis is looking at the skills required for a role and the performance competencies for each role group (or grouping) within an organisation. At Ripped Orange we have completed so many work analyses for our clients over the years we have a solid base of core skills matrices based on role types – something our clients get to take advantage of.
This is the one you may know as "gap analysis" or the all-encompassing “training needs analysis" service. It is the identification of the skills of the current incumbent against what they need to know to be successful. The output is a detailed learning recommendation or training plan.
