The work of McCall, Eichinger and Lombard in identifying the so-called 70/20/10 model has been critical in spreading awareness of the importance of informal learning. In a nutshell, their work asserts that 70% of learning and development takes place from real-life and on-the-job experiences, tasks, and problem solving; 20% of the time development comes from relationships with other people through informal or formal feedback, mentoring, or coaching; while 10% of learning and development comes from formal training or education.
