Getting started with needs analysis - share your best practices
Got a good question from a designer today & thought it would make a great forum discussion! Here's what she wants to know:
"I'm familiar with the ADDIE model, but I really want to get some "real world" advice about how to get information in the "Analysis" or data-gathering phase. For example, when you identify your SME, where do you go from there? In my limited experience, the SME starts out with a Powerpoint or something to that effect- but what if they do not have that information gathered yet? What if they just have an "idea?" Do you have a formula or questionnaire that you use as a method of needs assessment? I'm hoping you can help me with this! Look forward to hearing from you!"
