[IPAC-List] training needs assessment

I'm starting to develop a training program for a newly created job and
would like to gather task and KSA judgments from incumbents (the job was
created a year ago and the learning has come mostly from OJT until now).
I don't think the more general type of 'when needed' question (before
hire, after hire) will provide the kind of detail that is sufficient for
developing training. I realize importance and frequency are a start, and
'difficulty to learn' might get me closer, but does anyone have other,
perhaps more narrow, questions that are useful for guiding training
decisions? I can certainly make up my own but I thought that seeing
other ideas my spur my thinking.
