Quiet progress : needs analysis as an intervention into the training system

Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)Researchpeer-review

Abstract

Robin Snell's paper examines the pressures on a central training function in a large organisation to conform to things that by means of its work it wishes to change. It provides a case study of how the occasion of a needs analysis for a new programme was used to develop the difficult interface between the line and development functions. A subjective assessment is given concerning how the quiet struggle is progressing. Above all, the message is that the shape of development interventions is as much a product of political forces as it is about how best to help people learn.
