3 Effective Workplace Learning Methods

By Boaz Amidor

The 70:20:10 Model for Learning and Development is a commonly used formula within the training profession to describe the optimal sources of learning by successful managers.


It holds that individuals obtain 70% of their knowledge from job-related experiences, 20% from informal interactions, and 10% from formal educational events.


• 70% of learning comes from real life on-the-job experiences

• 20% of learning comes from other people

• 10% of learning comes from traditional training


The model was created in the ‘80s by three researchers working with the Center for Creative Leadership, a nonprofit educational institution in Greensboro, N.C.


The three, Morgan McCall, Michael M. Lombardo and Robert A. Eichinger, were researching the key developmental experiences of successful managers.


The 70:20:10 model is considered to be of greatest value as a general guideline for organizations seeking to maximize the effectiveness of their learning and development programs.


WalkMe is a performance support solution that was designed around the idea that on-the-job hands-on experience (the 70%) is the most beneficial, because it enables employees to refine their job-related skills, make decisions, address challenges and interact with influential people such as bosses and mentors within work settings.
