Welcome to ISPI Michigan         

Thursday, April 17th - Dinner and Chapter Meeting
Detroit Marriott Southfield - 5:30-8:30pm
We All Have "Needs" - Or do we? - The Needs Assessment Process


Ingrid Guerra-Lopez, PhD


Identifying needs is about figuring out where you want to go and picking the best way to get there...Yet in common practice, most people first pick the way to get there without having clarified where they want to arrive. As someone once said, "If you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there." Picking the wrong solutions to our performance needs is expensive, wastes time, creates frustration and disengagement, and destroys our credibility and influence.

Session Objectives:

  • Distinguish needs from solutions
  • Discuss a methodology for identifying needs and solutions
  • Examine different ways of applying this methodology through case studies
