Charles Kettering, an inventor for General Motors, once said, “A problem well-stated is half-solved.” The gap analysis tool can help you define problems and identify areas for process improvement in clear, specific, achievable terms. It can also help you define where you want to go and how you are going to get there.
This one-day course will give you the skills that you need to perform an effective gap analysis that will solve problems, improve processes, and take your project, department, or organisation to the next level.
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know other participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Participants will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
What is Gap Analysis?
Understanding what Gap Analysis is helps you make the most of it for your organisation. This session gives participants a definition and a look at the basic processes of gap analysis. It continues with a look at a few customised types of gap analysis for certain situations.
The Gap Analysis Process
Gap analysis, at first look, appears to be a very simple process. A closer examination reveals certain specific steps that students need to know to ensure a successful gap analysis. This session looks at those steps in depth and provides a template for recording information. A simple gap analysis for a fictional company is provided as an exercise.
Having a complete toolkit can make your gap analysis more effective and efficient. This session gives learners a chance to consider other tools they can make us of, including the five whys, fishbone diagrams, and SWOT analysis. Participants will get to practice with these tools during the session.
Creating a Gap Analysis Report
A gap analysis report provides the means to gather and present your findings from a gap analysis. This session shows students the essential elements of a gap analysis report along with some extra elements they may want to include if the situation dictates.
This session lets participants put the rubber to the road with a sample gap analysis they conduct based upon their pre-assignment.
At the end of the course, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.

We’re keen to ensure that all the participants get the most out of the day, so ideally, we would love to have a room that has natural daylight, space to move, sit and write / work in small groups and utilise the wall space.
It helps to have the equipment provided but we can provide screen, projectors, flip charts and sound etc.
The “in-house” price includes training materials for all participants and a brilliant trainer… come coach… come facilitator.
The price excludes facilitator travel / accommodation (if required) and VAT.
Quite simply, we take all the hassle, stress and time required to organise your course off-site.
We will provide;
We think this is great value and ideal for companies who do not have the resource or time to organise the training.
Please see “Terms” for specific details on our all-inclusive offer.
Full Course Terms and Conditions are available upon request and are provided during the booking process.
