Day 1 @ 13:40

Overcoming the training transfer problem with the 70:20:10 framework

  • Training has only a limited role in creating high performance in organisations
  • The training transfer problem has been created because we haven’t been using optimal approaches for solving performance problems
  • Frameworks such as the 70:20:10 model can help rectify this issue by bringing learning and working closer together.

Day 2 @ 10:20

Why Learning FROM Work is More Important than Learning TO Work

  • Learning is the product of experience. We learn more in the workplace than in the classroom
  • To achieve breakthrough performance need to think differently and separate ‘schooling’ from learning
  • There are proven strategies that help exploit workflow and informal learning in the workplace
