A number of companies are using a learning and development model known as 70:20:10.

If we break this down, when you are creating something new…

70% of what you have is left unchanged,
20% is improved upon, and
10% is something that you experiment with as brand new

The idea is “how do I improve something without breaking ‘it’?”

The “it” can be anything. Think of a comedian that is working on new material. 70% of their show is a winner. But, they might play around with 30% to see if they are going to continue to use it and fold into their 70%.

What do you do that makes up your 70% and what are you thinking about experimenting with?
