      General development needs
      Internal needs (staff training)
      Can be identified by looking at outputs, others not so obvious.

      Know what the prescribed standard of performance for a particular task is.
      The manager then have some criteria against which the current performance of the staff can be compared.
      Do a training needs analysis.
      This will determine what the actual performance of the individual is and if they meet the standard and if not, how far they deviate from it.
      Know what staff should be doing instead of what they are doing.
      Determine what the gap is between these.
      Plan training to fill the gap.
      Lookout for gaps between actual and desired performance results.
      Be ready to address discrepancies.
