Needs Assessment Concept Map
The needs assessment map is a project being lead by Ryan
Watkins of George Washington University to better understand
the relationships among the numerous theories, models, and
principle writings related to needs assessment. If you would

As the project progresses we will post updated PDF copies of the concept map here:
UPDATE: The mapping project is on hold for 2015/2016. In support of it we have begun a multi-disciplinary conversation with colleagues from economics, social work, sociology, philosophy, public health, religion, and other disciplines to first explore the question of "what are needs?" from diverse perspectives. The results of this conversation will then inform the continued mapping of theories, models, and principles that influence needs assessments.
