    Abstract

    Having an effective, well-planned course design is a must in an ESP course. Aiming to that, a thorough need analysis (NA) is conducted at Gemanusa Sentra Teknologi (GST), an IT company that requires its employees to have a good command of English to do the job well. Questionnaires, semi-structure interviews and observations of participants doing their jobs were conducted to find out the present situation, target situation, and learning situation of the upcoming course as suggested by Dudley-Evans and St.John (1998:123-124) and Westerfield (2010). The research reveals a gap between the NA results regarding the wide range of target events, materials, and students’ low speaking competence and the course objective. A negotiation with stakeholders was conducted in order to bridge the gap (Dudley-Evans and St.John, 1989:14). The NA and negotiation made it possible to design a well-planned ESP course.
