The author recognizes that there are other learning strategies to assess the level of training needs in business organizations. He recognizes the need for organizations to develop diagnostic procedures to know whether the issue to address really requires immediate training when a problem arises. Questions vital for the assessment of training needs include the generation of qualitative and quantitative data to determine whether a perceived training need is a cause or a symptom.
