Why Should You Attend:

Many organizational leaders are moving away from classroom-based or even online-based training as solitary methods of developing individuals. If work experience is valuable for the lessons that it teaches workers, then most individual development occurs on the job. A more balanced approach to developing individuals is to rely on the so-called 70-20-10 rule, first described by Lombardo and Eichinger to emphasize the importance of using a balanced approach to individual development. Seventy percent of individual development should occur on the job; twenty percent should occur through social learning, peer learning, and social media; and only ten present should occur through planned online or onsite training. This session will describe how to use the 70-20-10 rule.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how individual development plans (IDPs) can be the focus of talent development
  • Clarify how 70 percent can be managed within the 70-20-10 rule
