Abstract


Cadres of Kampung KB as facilitators of community empowerment programs are required to have good knowledge in implementing needs assessment with adaptive data management with the industrial era 4.0. The needs assessment technique is not only done manually but can use digital technology to facilitate data collection and data access. However, the use of technology needs to be supported by the facilitator's knowledge of the need’s assessment, because it is the basis for understanding the meaning of data tracing. This study uses a quantitative approach, in the form of descriptive statistics, namely interpreting the percentage data from the answers given by the respondents. From the results of the study, it was found that the cadres' needs assessment ability was included in the “Enough” category, while the competence that needed to be improved was knowledge about setting priority needs. So that the researchers suggest, it is necessary to hold competency training for KB cadres or village administrators which aims to provide understanding and skills in conducting needs assessment.
