What is the Key to Presentation Skills?
We will look at the beginning steps to follow when creating a plan to improve your Presentation Skills. The first thing to look at is to perform a Needs Analysis. This will help you to understand your audience and provide you with the answers to a few basic questions. A basic outline and some minor research would then be utilized to help create the basic program that will assist you in developing greater Presentation Skills.
Performing a Needs Analysis
A needs analysis measures what skills employees have — and what they need. It indicates how to deliver the right training at the right time. The results answer the following questions:
- What is the audience with the problem or need for change?
- What tasks and subtasks does an expert perform to complete a work process?
- What gaps exist between experts, average, and poor performers of a work process?
- How do we translate the needs into objectives to promote a strong learning outcome?
The method can be simple; observation, careful note taking, and asking questions work.
