Needs Assessment: Getting What You Really Want

Presented by: Ryan Watkins


The earliest decisions that lead to projects or programs are among the most critical in determining long-term success. This phase of project development transforms exciting ideas into project proposals, thereby setting the stage for a variety of actions that will eventually lead (if all goes well) to desirable results. Decisions ranging from a propose a sanitation project in South Asia or North Florida to selecting approaches that strengthen school management in South America or Eastern Kentucky, are the early decisions that form the starting place of evaluation results. Needs assessments support this earliest phase of project development with proven approaches to gathering information and making justifiable decisions.
