70:20:10 The Right Ratio, or So We All Thought - GLF 2014|2015

Is 70:20:10 fact or myth? We couldn't find any recent supporting research, and we wanted to learn more about these magic numbers. What we found might just surprise you: in reality, leaders spend their time on--and prefer--a different ratio. See how leaders actually spend their time, and the ratio that proves most effective. For a full list of findings from the Global Leadership Forecast 2014|2015, visit www.ddiworld.com/glf2014.

  • @CharlesJennings Thanks for contributing to the discussion Charles! We address those points in the research and though we do feel formal learning provides a critical foundation for learning from others and on-the-job learning, we share your opinion that an excessive focus on the numbers is counterproductive and emphasizes distinctions among types of learning rather than their integration, the latter where the most powerful development systems focus. Please let us know if you think any of the points in the research need additional explanation.

  • Surely the way leaders spend their time, or prefer to do so, depends on specific situations/context - leaders in different organisations, and even different leaders, will vary. Having worked with many organisations that are using the principles behind the 70:20:10 framework I've seen it serve as a very useful principle to extend focus on the development that happens beyond structured events. The fact that DDI is even talking about the 'numbers' suggests that DDI doesn't 'get it'. I've written several articles, booklets etc. about this misconception. One is here http://charles-jennings.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/its-only-65.html
