Needs Assessment

Have your needs changed since March 2020 and what are those needs? A useful tool in answering those questions is a Needs Assessment. A needs assessment is a process used by organizations to determine priorities, make organizational improvements, or allocate resources. it involves determining the needs, or gaps, between where the organization envisions itself in the future and the organization's current state. It usually consists of three parts:

  1. Exploration and Identification

  2. Data Collection and Analysis

  3. Evaluation and Summary of Findings

A needs assessment is the "what" that precedes the "how". It is a useful tool in determining what is preventing you from achieving your desired goals.
