Stephen Sorenson reminds readers that creating training without conducting a needs assessment is a gamble unlikely to pay-off in learning. Needs assessments define IF training is needed and the best method to deliver the training. Training is not a magic bullet to solve all management woes.
Another valid point Sorenson make is discovering WHEN the training should take place. Learners have little use for information that is unneeded in the near future. Learners forget quickly after training and need to be able to practice and apply the training as soon as possible.
Without understanding the IF's and WHEN's of training aren't established early in the process, the trainer is rolling some loaded dice.
