TNA for Senior managers


Does anyone have any advice on Best Practice for conducting a TNA for senior managers?

  1. Ask around

    It’s difficult to give a precise answer without knowing what the trigger for the TNA is. What are the specific business issues which lead you to believe that the senior management has training needs that need tobe analysed?

    That said the issues for senior management are often leadership or management or both rather than technical skills.

    To that end a 360 assessment is a fabulous way to find out what changes the individuals need to make. You’ll need to decide the behaviours required of the group before designing a question set to draw out needs.

    You can work with a standard question set, provided it reflects your organisation’s reality, or go with a more tailored set either by tweaking or starting from scratch.

    By involving others in the 360 you’ll get a rounded view of needs and your senior team will know that the feedback is real and the needs identified relevant and not simply invented by the training department as they have a course to meet the need.

    Take a look at for some input on 360, leadership and management development to get you started.

    Good Luck
