Over two decades of experience training people in component technologies and methodologies has taught us the most effective 'formula' for skills development is 10:30:60.
10% of a person's knowledge and skills comes from training courses that combine lectures and practical learning. This is the foundation for all future learning.
30% comes from workshops with a skilled facilitator. This consolidates course knowledge by applying skills to actual projects.
60% develops through coaching at work by experienced professionals. This accelerates skills development and assists in solving specific project related problems.
The ability to apply new skills and practices 'on the job' is the real test of return on training investment.
To get the benefit out of your initial investment in courses, we highly recommend following up with workshops and coaching.
