Meetings can be a huge waste of time – no news there. There are too many and they are frequently badly managed. They may run over, be boring, lack focus, rigor and alignment. 331 more words
This is an interesting discussion. I still believe that the 70-20-10 structure is a good way to get folks who have historically relied on formal programs exclusively to think in new ways about their training needs. Informal learning -- and developing a culture that honors it and skills for individuals to capture and retrieve it -- is crucial in our always-on, data-driven workplaces. However, the writer here is correct that those numbers seem arbitrary and are probably meaningless. So, I guess I ride the fence on this debate, but am very interested to see more thought and research in learning, formal and informal.
