Training Need Identification (TNI) is a very crucial element in the field of training and development. Before providing any training, it is necessary to know, whether training will improve situation or not, whether organization or person will get benefit of training or not. After this question if answer is yes than, which kind of training will be selected to match the particular situation, time duration of training, who will train, how many people should be provided training as a time etc. Answers of these all questions can be given through Training Need Identification (TNI). Many people are ready to start their own business or enterprise due to many numbers of reasons but all people may not get success in entrepreneurship. There are various characteristics of a successful entrepreneur. All characteristics of a successful entrepreneur can not be developed through training but many of them can be developed through training. Before developing any characteristics of a successful entrepreneur, we should identify the need for training. After identification of needs, we can go for training to develop various characteristics of a successful entrepreneur. To identify need for training, first of all we should know the current status or tendency of any people or future entrepreneur towards entrepreneurship. For that we have utilized enterprising tendency test. We have selected total 30 people who wish to become an entrepreneur and identified training needs for these 30 future entrepreneurs.
