Needs Evaluation

What are the components of a needs evaluation? How do you get started?

3 Critical Components:


  1. Collection Processes

    • Is the current process working?

    • Do additional components need to be added?

  2. Data Organization

    • Does the organization facilitate moving data from collection to analysis?

    • This includes location, design and control

    • This is an area where you can have a big impact

    • The best solutions are often times the least complex

  3. Data Analysis

    • What questions can you help answer?

    • What methods and tools can you recommend?
