How do you know what you need? You do a needs assessment or have someone do it for you. There are always key components of data collection and practice that must be reliable, repeatable and accurate to facilitate needs assessment:
- Must be a systematic process for determining and addressing needs, or “gaps” between current conditions and optimal or “wants”.
- The difference is measured between the current and wanted condition to appropriately identify the need.
- The need can be a desire to improve current performance or to correct a deficiency.
- A needs assessment is a part of planning processes. .
- Needs assessments can help improve the quality of policy or program decisions
Two choice for how to Conduct the Needs Assessment –Extensive or Intensive
Extensive needs assessment uses a large number of cases to determine the characteristics of a population Among our methods is SWOT analysis. SWOT stands for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. The basic process involves gathering information about an organization’s activities and outcomes within a set time period.
Intensive needs assessment one or a few cases in depth to understand cause and effect and requires the ranking of priorities based upon criteria.
Tools we use to step through Needs Assessment Include:
Community Service/Organization SURVEY–Surveys can be used in the gathering of community demographics where a large number of people may be involved, with multiple variables for the targeted actions.
Community/Organization MAPPING–Is the where and how to place the service at a particular point in the community/organization, and whether that service is likely to be used. Community/Organization is a mapping where to locate a service so that it is conveniently placed and accessible to participants.
Seasonal Calendars may reveal important reasons for the gaps between service utilization and intervention outcomes. The elements revealed may need to planned for in the project or plan. These things are related to work, cultural activities, certain times of the year in which participants are unavailable at all and so on, and to plot how they share them with other members of the community/organization.
Focus groups are sessions in which community/organization members can answer questions about different aspects of the service/activity in the form of planned discussions. This is a good opportunity to actually find out about the needs and concerns of the groups. Additionally, allowing for addressing service gaps and what needs to be done about them.
