Needs Assessment

We believe that a strategic needs assessment is a critical component in helping you to clarify your educational needs and design and deliver highly effective materials. Our approach includes conducting interviews with your in-house team to identify your desired outcomes, perceived barriers to success, and the opinion(s) and capacity of your organization. We also engage Key Opinion Leaders and present you with a summary of our findings and recommendations for consideration. We utilize a variety of methodologies including survey(s), and on-line and face-to-face interviews.
