Systematic Needs Assessment and Targeted Education Delivery

A method is described which enables an Education/Resource Development organization to deliver the education that is required, to the people who need it, in a priority sequence, and in a timely manner to meet the strategic needs of the organization. The customer base can be diverse, with a significant population and a complex organizational structure. The three major phases in the process are collection, analysis and delivery.

Data collection is accomplished by a panel driven on-line system designed for ease of use. Fig. 1 illustrates the type of data collected to define the total need. This includes the educational definition, priority, timeframe and characteristics of the individuals involved.

Data analysis is accomplished by use of relational databases containing the collected needs and the organizational structure of the target group. Fig. 2 illustrates this phase.

The delivery phase is accomplished with the support of targeted communications relating the required audience with the educational offerings. Fig. 3 illustrates this phase.

This technique is not limited to the educational delivery arena.
