With budgets under constant pressure, but the learning and business performance needs of organisations remaining as critical as ever, L&D teams are responding by moving learning out of the classroom and into the workplace. For many the emphasis has been on creating a 70:20:10 learning environment, with 70% of learning taking place in the workplace, 20% through peer to peer learning, and only 10% in a formal learning environment.
Success requires the transformation of a learning curriculum into multiple, varied and compelling peer to peer and individual learning opportunities that are all closely aligned to the business’s strategy and operational needs.
It also requires a structured programme that properly engages and motivates managers and individuals to actively take control of their learning, bringing them plenty of opportunities to develop their skills and knowledge in the workplace, on line and in groups and individually.

The UK Retail Academy was a success because it created a development culture delivered straight to our UK retail stores and an unprecedented desire to learn amongst the in-store population’ Caroline Carr, Head of Sales and Service Academy O2
O2 needed to revitalise and modernise their UK Retail Academy to equip all retail staff to drive improved business and customer service performance. The aim was to create genuine ‘learning pull’ rather than central L&D ‘push’. 81 different learning modules were designed using the principles of 70:20:10. This gave learners the ability to access tailored content based on their learning gaps aligned with their role competencies – as well as their own learning preferences. This approach dramatically improved engagement and participation.
This major programme incorporated a range of learning tools, from simulations, eLearning, quizzes, assessments, forums, videos, and webinars along with extensive programmes of manager coaching and mentoring to encourage teams and individuals to take participate and take responsibility for their learning.
