Project Needs Assessment Training (Virtually and Onsite)

//Project Needs Assessment Training (Virtually and Onsite)
Loading Events


While a solid needs assessment does not always ensure a good project, a lack of one nearly always assures a bad one! Assessments are an important part of the project cycle since they inform how choices will be made. This training helps participants enhance the quality of their needs assessments and, as a result, the relevance of any interventions that may follow.

The course focuses on the multiple actions that must be accomplished during the assessment process and the tactics and tools used to optimize data collection during stakeholder interviews. The training includes a one-day “field” exercise to practice newly acquired abilities whenever possible. A case study is used instead if a field exercise is not feasible.


3 days


The individual cost for the training workshop is USD 450 for individual participants and USD 250 for groups above 10 participants, exclusive of 16% VAT. This covers the training fee, resource materials, and conference package. Participants attending the training onsite will be responsible for travel expenses and arrangements, such as airport transfers (and visa application, where necessary), food and accommodation, health/accident insurance, and other personal expenses.

Intended Attendees

The course will benefit persons who are new to project management or have experience but have not yet obtained training, particularly program managers, coordinators, field and all staff involved in needs assessments and managers supervising these assessments.


This course is delivered through interactive lectures, case studies, and simulations that aim to provide competency and skills to technical staff to create cutting-edge humanitarian supply chain systems in their organizations.


Participants will be familiar with the assessment principle and method at the end of the course. They can get information from important stakeholders by preparing and using the proper tools.
