We all want to grow and achieve throughout our working lives. But what is the most effective way to learn and develop? Some say the answer is to take the 70:20:10 approach. The 70:20:10 model for effective adult learning was developed in 1996 by Lambardo & Eichinger, and has been thoroughly tested and researched ever since.
“Development generally begins with a realization of current or future need and the motivation to do something about it. This might come from feedback, a mistake, watching other people’s reactions, failing or not being up to a task – in other words, from experience. The odds are that development will be about 70% from on-the-job experiences, working on tasks and problems; about 20% from feedback and working around good and bad examples of the need, and 10% from courses and reading.”
– Lambardo & Eichinger
