Abstract: Training needs assessment is the first crucial step followed in the process of organisational training. Introduced by McGehee and Thayer (1961), training needs assessment (TNA) studies have been reflective on the importance of TNA in context to training, how in practice TNA is apparent and the various TNA models and frameworks. The TNA data gathering tools and techniques have been there for different levels of TNA, that is, at organisational level, task level, person or man analysis level (Moore and Dutton 1978). Training needs assessment in practice in organisations shows how TNA has been in the scenario, the criteria considered for selection of data collection method to determine training needs assessment; and challenges organisations have been facing while conducting TNA. Where, different groups were also brought into the forefront showing TNA in practice. The needs identified by TNA were another area explored. TNA studies also included deliberations on the decision maker of the content of training to be delivered and initiator or training in organisations. Whereon, training, TNA and organisations together gave how TNA is seen by the academicians and the HR experts. Here most of those associated with TNA, held forth about an enormous gap between the TNA theories and TNA practices. This triggered the research to be undertaken to examine the impact of TNA on training content and trainee selection, to investigate how organisations reduce and locate TNA challenges pertaining to training and to study current practices for collecting data pertaining to TNA and outline scope for improvement. Mixed method approaches were followed engaging predominantly on the quantitative approach. Looking at how the Indian economy has been exposed to many upheaval situations, and how setting up of Public Sector Enterprises (PSEs) in India, served the broad macro-economic objectives (Gillbreth 2006) within the overall planned effort for economic development (Mascarenhas 1972), this study has focused on Central Public Sector Enterprises‘ ‗non-executives‘ of India, as ‗non-executives‘ were found to be away in the TNA studies. Statistical package for the social sciences (SPSS) and SmartPLS software and manual approaches helped to analyse the study data. Where, through ADDIE model of training, the study findings were successful in their attempt to bridge that gap on training needs assessment issues by arriving at TNA models through SEM to conduct TNA in an organisational set-up.
