L&D: Moving From Informal Learning to Formal Learning Is a Business Decision

Not an L&D Decision

The 70 – learning through trial and error – may be OK.

And maybe not.


The 20 – learning through social interactions – may be OK.

And maybe not.


The 10 – learning through Formal Learning/ T&D/ etc. – may be costly.

And may be well worth it.


All Learning starts as Informal until someone decides to resource making it more Formal.


It’s a Business Decision – based on the Risks and/or Rewards at stake. And … a dollar not spent falls back to the Bottom Line.


Good Stewards of Shareholder Equity know why – from a Business Perspective – they would invest in Formal Learning – and why not.
