TNA tools


I am currently involved in a number of TNA activities around our company. This is resulting in a large amount of data being produced, which has to be analysed and presented as a training plan. I wonder if anyone uses or knows of any electronic systems, which can be used for collecting the data and to make the analysis process less time-consuming. A system where folk could fill in their own forms and submit them for analysis would be good. Any help/thougts/guidance appreciated.

  1. Survey Software
    I’ve been using Snap Survey Software for online surveys and have just taken delivery of the upgraded version which has lots of useful additions.

    You can use the software for all sorts of purposes, including TNAs. The reporting and anlaysis functions have also been enhanced in the latest version.

    We undertook a major survey last summer using the tool and it saved a huge amount of time and enabled us to undertake a more thorough analysis of the data.

    I’d be happy to provide you with more information.

  2. Designer’s Edge Software
    Because there was a lack of instructional designers available, our college bought and distributed copies of Allen Communication’s ‘Designer’s Edge’ to help instructors develop new courses. You might like to check out their website:

  3. In house solution – an option?
    We are currently in the analysis phase of a similar TNA exercise – rolled out across 2,500 employees. We took the decision to develop the questionnaire in house and have used the intranet to enable on-line completion. Microsoft Access appears to give all the analysis and reporting functionality we will need to be able to put together a robust training plan. This might be an option for you if you have the internal IT resources. If you’d like to talk through further please contact me.

  4. Existing Tools Available – Shop Around

    I would suggest a trip to the Learning Technologies show next week (26, 27 Jan at Olympia 2, London). Entrance is free. There are over 100 companies there, many will be able to help you, I’m sure.
