The Learning Needs Assessment is the appropriate starting point for organisations wishing to ensure that there is a clear alignment between the training and development of their employees and the organisation’s strategic goals.


Members of the University’s Global Faculty and the Centre for Learning Design identify current business and industry challenges through extensive research on business environments to ensure the learning solutions are relevant to the dynamic business scenarios. They have been involved in the learning-needs assessment for several large organisations.


The Learning Needs Assessment typically involves talking to a wide range of stakeholders within the organisation such as business heads and senior HR people and is conducted over a period of 1 to 2 weeks.


A learning-needs assessment includes:

  • Understanding the near-term, medium-term and long-term business and strategic goals of the organisation
  • Identifying a road-map of required roles, skills and competencies
  • Examining the current talent and skills pool
  • Identifying gaps and shortcomings
  • Aligning current training and develop approaches to the road-map
  • Proposing training and learning solutions and programs
  • Examining appropriate delivery options
