Informal Learning: How to harness it without killing it

What it’s about: Discover why informal learning is the powerhouse of learning in the workplace and how you can start to make it work for your organisation on a day-to-day basis. Despite its power it is in many ways fragile. How can you manage it without destroying the informality, the very thing that makes it so powerful?

The 70:20:10 model posits that 70% or more of the knowledge any person uses to do their job is learned through on-the-job experience and 20% through interactions with other people on the job. If informal learning is such a large part of how people get results at work, we need to be paying far more attention to it, and not throwing all our budget at only the formal approaches like training and elearning.

Who it’s for: L&D or HR professional are provided with some key ideas to  embed and support Informal Learning into an organisation while delivering improved results.

It helps explain an area of L&D which is often ignored despite its potential for getting better results.
