The 70-20-10 rule (70% of people learn best through experience, 20% through people and 10% through formal education) is common sense now, but it wasn’t always. Bob Eichinger put together the original study that supported the idea. 70-20-10 has far-reaching implications even to this day; business and formal education are beginning to recognize the importance of on-the-job learning once again.
- a critical fact – that most learning, most of the time, comes not from courses and programmes, classrooms, workshops and eLearning, but from everyday activities.
- use it to open our eyes to learning that is happening all the time on-the-job, but is largely invisible.
- 70% Learning from Challenging Assignments; 20% Learning from Others; and 10% Learning from Coursework.
“The 70-20-10 model has been part of the corporate learning and development lexicon for decades. Some people find implementing 70-20-10 brings transformational change to their corporate learning cultures. Others are not quite sure what to make of it or how to leverage the model.”
