The 70-20-10 model for learning design recognizes and leverages the way we really learn. 70% application, doing it, stretch goals 20% coaching, peers 10% classroom / formal Organizations report people learn more, better, faster when 70-20-10 is applied. And they report up to a 75% reduction in their training spend!
