Needs Assessment for Organizational Success
Most books start with the tools and techniques of needs assessment and assume that implementation will naturally bring success. This is not the case. This book begins with the concepts of front-end alignment, followed by the tools needed for positive, predictable, and measurable results. This book does not deal with specific data collection methodology or approaches. Rather, this book deals with the framework and alignment that will make such methodologies and approaches useful.
