Most books on conducting a learning needs assessment will tell you the process takes 3-5 weeks. In reality, you're lucky if you get 1 week, especially if you're doing sales training. Having a learning needs assessment template ready, can ensure you spend more time building a relationship with your stakeholders and less time worrying about what questions to ask.
Here's my template for conducing a learning needs assessment. What makes this template unique is that I have added 3 examples that apply to sales training. So, if you're working on customer service, sales methodology or product sales, this template can really help.
