WHAT IS IT?
The 70-20-10 model reflects the increasing awareness that we learn by “doing” and not just by “knowing”. 70-20-10 reinforces a common-sense approach that we learn most of the knowledge, skills and behaviours we need to perform our jobs through actual experience and working alongside others – and not in the classroom.
The model has its origins in the work of McCall, Eichinger and Lombardo from the Centre for Creative Leadership, and shows:
- 70% Learning and development comes from experience (on-the-job)
- 20% Learning and development through others (social learning)
- 10% Learning and development through structured training
