On-The-Job Training: Fact or Fiction?
Play • 51 min

In this episode, we discuss training at work. Specifically, we examine what’s widely known in the training industry as the 70:20:10 rule. One part of this idea is that most of the learning that occurs at work happens informally and not through more formal experiences like those in the classroom. But does this idea stand the test of science? We explore: 

- The 70:20:10 rule and a review of the evidence 

- Maximizing the value of on-the-job training

- Implications for people, leaders, and organizations
