70+20+10=100: The evidence behind the numbers

Fresh evidence looking at the actions behind the numbers and the impact on performance.

70+20+10=100: The evidence behind the numbers

The essence of the 70:20:10 framework is that learning occurs through a range of approaches, roughly 70% from real life and on-the-job experiences, 20% from feedback and observing others and 10% from formal training.

The evidence currently is encouraging; it identifies the positive impact of new models such as this one. It is therefore important that the benefits of this are identified, and potential room for improvement with this model is also addressed.

In this report, we seek to:  

  • Demonstrate data and figures, analyzing the approach and use of 70:20:10 

  • Discuss possible changes that could be implemented to this model 

  • Investigate the best means for learning efficiency
