Needs assessments may be small to large or simple to complex depending on the nature of the issue to be addressed. Having a process in place to plan and manage your needs assessment – whatever its size and complexity – will aid in the assessment’s success. Without a plan, you are at risk of missing critical steps. Guideposts for logistics and decision-making can help. This demonstration presents relevant needs assessment tasks and concepts in simple groupings, and demonstrates a checklist approach to conducting a meaningful needs assessment. A checklist can be a form of insurance against important pieces of your needs assessment falling through the cracks. Also demonstrated will be the application of several needs assessment methods by a team working in knowledge and learning who wanted to clarify and consolidate their work of advising on the monitoring and evaluation of projects.
