70+20+10=100: The Evidence Behind the Numbers


Published on

Laura Overton presented these slides at a workshop facilitated by the Corporate Learning Consortium on 21 April 2016.

Towards Maturity have been able to explore existing data gathered in the 2015 Benchmark to understand the extent to which the 70:20:10 framework is being considered in current L&D thinking and the extent that the tactics within the framework are being implemented. We have been able to share the findings publically, thanks to Towards Maturity’s Ambassadors - the Corporate Learning Consortium and Docebo.
