Why the 70:20:10 model isn’t enough to build a learning organisation - Lane4
As the business landscape continues to change, companies need to become “learning organisations” that can rapidly adapt and take on new skills. To help build this capacity, many organisations have adopted the “70:20:10 rule” to help shape learning – but this isn’t enough. Listen to Lane4's on demand webinar where Dr. Alison Maitland, Head of Product, and Amy Aggleton, Product Development Lead, discuss:
• The origins, advantages, and shortcomings of the 70:20:10 model
• How leaders learn best
• Practical tips on how to create sustainable learning and build a learning organisation
The future of learning: Making technology sweat - Lane4
The integration of technology into large-scale learning and development programmes is inevitable and, as a business case, a no-brainer. However, simply making a programme more digital is by no means a guaranteed business win. Get it right, and the ROI is substantial. Get it wrong, and it’s money down the drain. This whitepaper includes:
• Key tips for designing and successfully integrating technology into your learning and development programmes
• Information on how to use technology to create meaningful shift in terms of thinking, behaviour and ultimately business performance
• Insight into the balance needed between tech-enabled and face to face learning for development
