ADVISOR Needs Assessment module provides a step by step approach for understanding a problem before selecting the solution – in other words, before assuming that training is the solution. Needs Assessment provides an audit trail and serves as the foundation for decisions by zeroing in on the source of the problem and identifying solutions that can produce the desired level of productivity. Moreover, ADVISOR highlights actions that will generate the greatest impact. Read brochure.
