In-Focus: 70+20+10=100: The Evidence Behind The Numbers
This brand-new In-Focus report from Towards Maturity and Charles Jennings provides fresh evidence looking at the actions behind the numbers and the impact on performance.
Why this research?
“I have teamed up with Towards Maturity in order to bring independent evidence to help L&D leaders understand the fact versus the fiction behind 70:20:10. The Towards Maturity team have investigated the impact of adopting new models of learning on business and performance using evidence from over 600 L&D leaders taking part in the 2015 Towards Maturity Benchmark. Together, we aim to de-mystify and de-construct the 70:20:10 model to determine how L&D can encourage and support learning in each of the 3 approaches and dispel some of these myths that have taken centre stage.”
~ Charles Jennings, co-author of this report
The essence of the 70:20:10 framework is that learning occurs through a range of approaches, being roughly:
- 70% from real life and on-the-job experiences, tasks and problem solving.
- 20% from feedback and from observing and working with others
- 10% from formal training such as classes or courses (both face-to-face and online) and reading
Towards Maturity has been deconstructing the activities behind the model for many years to understand the extent to which the principles have been applied. However, there has been considerable debate lately about the framework. This report, co-authored by Towards Maturity and Charles Jennings, provides fresh evidence looking at the actions behind the numbers and the impact on performance.
- 47% of L&D professionals believe that their approach is shaped by models that support learning in the flow of work
- Independent analysis showed that compared with peers not using models, they are:
- 4x more likely to report they respond faster to business change
- 3x more likely to report improvement in staff motivation
- They are more likely to deploy a genuine balance of attention to all 3 activity areas
- They are more likely to use technology to support the activity:
- 2x more likely to use performance support tools
- 50% more likely to use learning communities and communities of practice
- They have higher expectations that managers should play an active role for developing the skills of their staff
- They are investing in the skills of their teams:
- 2.5x more likely to have skills in facilitating collaboration
- Almost 2x more likely to already have blended learning skills and performance consulting skills in-house

Qantas Airway, the flag carrier airline of Australia, is on a learning transformation journey. Michelle Ockers, who recently partnered with Towards Maturity as an expert learning analyst, worked with Qantas as an independent strategic advisor in 2017. She engaged Towards Maturity to help Qantas identify how they could create a modern and engaging learner experience.
New evidence from 10,000 workers dispel the myths that business leaders have about how they learn in the modern workplace.
Measuring the benefits of L&D and comms initiatives remains a challenge. Just one in eight learning and development professionals1 believe their organization measures the return on investment of learning programmes. Success can be measured either through quantitative measurement or qualitative change, but whatever approach is chosen, effective measurement is vital to ensure L&D and comms strategies are delivering on objectives and attract future investment.
Micro-learning delivers learning nuggets in easily digestible, bite-sized chunks. Learners can access micro-learning as they need it, on the job. Industry expert Josh Bersin describes micro-learning as an ‘amazing innovation’, explaining that microlearning platforms now let you manage the proliferation of video, assessment, and other small content objects with tools for curation, tracking, recommendations, and AI-based prescriptive learning”.
New research finds 54% of learning is still being conducted solely in the classroom – but change is needed for formal learning to remain effective
Towards Maturity delve deeper into the dichotomy L&D are facing between formal learning and the desire for increased accessibility and availability. Supported by ambassadors, Raytheon Professional Services, this brand new In Focus report uncovers new insight into the most effective ways to improve formal learning by exploring what successful organisations are doing differently.

Drawing on 15 years of experience and independent data from over 700+ L&D professionals, 10,000+ learners and 200+ L&D leaders that took part in our 2018 Leadership Pulse survey, Towards Maturity and Skillsoft set to uncover real evidence to highlight where the best opportunities are to develop leadership capabilities.
The ability to change behaviour through habit creation is crucial to becoming a top performing organisation, particularly as learners have the skills to build new capabilities quickly and ‘unbuild’ old behaviours that are no longer relevant. But how do you actually create habits in the workplace?
What does L&D’s relationship with data look like today? With over 150 L&D leaders from a variety of sectors and organisations of all sizes taking part in the Towards Maturity L&D Data Pulse, this report analyses why it is important to use data effectively and outlines pathways to success and real impact.
At a time when L&D are talking about UX and learner centric design more than ever before, their staff have unprecedented access to technology and communities.
