Would you like to prepare your organization for the 70-20-10 Model? If yes I highly encourage you to read  The 70:20:10 L&D Model for Developing a High-Performing Workforce article

There are two 70:20:10 models in business:

  1. 70:20:10 Model in Learning & Development
  2. 70:20:10 Model in Managing Innovation

70:20:10 Model in Learning & Development

The 70:20:10 Model in Learning & Development was developed by Morgan McCall and his colleagues Robert W. Eichinger and Michael M. Lombardo at the Centre for Creative Leadership in the year 1996. This was based on the results of their survey with successful and effective managers which revealed that ‘Learning’ is:
• 70% from tough jobs
• 20% from people (mostly the boss)
• 10% from courses and reading

This stresses on the need to extend learning beyond classroom and course paradigm. It also provides a framework for improving and extending traditional training and learning into the workplace where:

  • ‘70’ refers to ‘workplace learning’ and ‘performance support’
  • ‘20’ refers to ‘social learning’ (including informal coaching and mentoring)
  • ‘10’ refers to ‘structured learning’

70:20:10 Model in Managing Innovation

The 70:20:10 Model in Managing Innovation is a business resource management model that was pioneered in 2005 by Eric Schmidt, ex-CEO of Google Inc, and is being practiced at Google ever since. It emphasizes the proportion of time that employees should spend on different activities, as given below:

  • 70% on core business tasks
  • 20% on projects related to core business
  • 10% on projects unrelated to core business

This model signifies the need to redefine the (traditional) outlook towards business resource management. It encourages creativity, innovation, and experimentation within organizations, thus making them successful in today’s highly competitive world.
