I agree with Charles Jenning’s ideas and background in the 70:20:10 video below.
He comments that “managing” the 70% and 20% of learning which is not in a formal classroom is not possible (you can facilitate it, but you can’t manage it). And my concern is that it does rely on the political acumen of individuals to be able to ask the right person to help, mentor, advice or expose them to the new ideas and databases they need to learn what they need to solve their problems.
Political Acumen most popular program Soft Skills for Technical Specialists is about this. Call Cindy 0412 135 426 to find out about our self-paced learning options, or how your internal consulting team can benefit.
