Learner-Centric Platform

Docebo Forms Strategic Partnership with 70:20:10 Institute

Toronto (CA), November 2016 - Learner-centric technology is urgently needed in the corporate training world. That's why Docebo, a learning-management system (LMS) in the business market, is partnering with the 70:20:10 Institute to further capitalize on the potential of learning through work and social collaboration.

Docebo, a leading learning-management-system provider, is excited to announce it has partnered with the 70:20:10 Institute as part of its focus on delivering a comprehensive learner-centric platform. The 70:20:10 Institute works with organizations that provide innovative products to support the 70:20:10 reference model.

"We feel that our approaches and views of the future of learning and performance are well aligned," says Charles Jennings, one of the co-founders of the 70:20:10 Institute.

70:20:10 refers to a well-known framework that describes learning as it naturally happens and offers a means for accelerating and supporting that learning. The categories in the model refer to

  • learning by working (70%)
  • social learning (20%)
  • formal learning (10%)

Research suggests that while formal learning (usually traditional classroom-based training) has comprised the majority of workplace training in the past, this approach is not as impactful as previously imagined. For this reason, many learning-and-development professionals have adopted the 70:20:10 model to capitalize on the potential of learning through work and social collaboration.

"The 70:20:10 model has had terrific success helping businesses move beyond formal learning to create a culture of continuous learning," explains Claudio Erba, CEO and Founder of Docebo.

While the methodology is not new, there is an urgent need for companies to implement technology that supports this learning approach. The majority of learning-management systems address formal training requirements with ease. Unfortunately, few technology solutions are able to effectively enable and capture experiential and social learning in the workplace. This is where Docebo stands apart from the competition.

"Docebo is a leader in the industry, offering solutions that address all three parts of the 70:20:10 model," says Jennings.

Research has shown that organizations which have integrated the 70:20:10 framework into their L&D strategies experience many benefits, including improved processes (73%) and better overall efficiency (72%). Businesses today cannot afford not to take advantage of these types of performance improvements.

"Charles is one of the world's leading experts in the workplace-learning industry," says Erba. "We're looking forward to working more closely with his colleagues and him and learning from them through this partnership."

Docebo helps businesses to implement a learning strategy that incorporates formal, social, and experiential learning.
