Where Do We Start?

 

Our first step in creating online learning is to complete a thorough Needs Analysis. This helps us establish accurate blueprints for your training project. The Designing Digitally, Inc. team will collaborate with you to analyze your audience traits, their current knowledge and skills, the training goals of the project, and the technical requirements for the final output.

If you were to build a custom house, you would not break ground until you had a firm blueprint in place. We follow a similar systematic process to develop your custom training. We invest time upfront to uncover details about your learning content and your audience. Once we gather all of the information, then we can prepare a design for your learning experience. This ensures your training reaches the appropriate target audience, with the right information, at the right time. Needs Analysis consulting also helps us deliver your project on time and on budget. By carefully discovering information and formulating a plan prior to starting development, we avoid changes in direction that could jeopardize the production timeline and budget.

If you're not sure where to start, but you know you need training for your organization, contact Designing Digitally, Inc.! We will help you create a detailed training plan through Needs Analysis consulting.

Why Training Needs Analysis 2

Why Training needs analysis?

Training Needs Analysis ensures the learning experience is going to make an appropriate behavioral change. It allows us to dive into your content and organization to dig up pain points and learning objectives that may be buried under course content. eLearning can become “content-centric” rather than “learner-centric”. Learners often shy away from “content-centric” courseware because they have to work hard to find what they need. Our Needs Analysis Consultation allows the team at Designing Digitally to collaborate with you and your organization to break down the need. Then, we create the best possible plan moving forward that meets your business need and will effectively train your employees. One of the most important steps in the process is the Training Needs Analysis, so let our firm help you with this effort today! Contact us to learn more.
