how technical teams evolve

Successful learning and development initiatives for technical teams require a holistic approach that integrates formal and informal elements. Such an approach relies on the 70/20/10 formula:

  • 70% from real life and on-the-job experiences, tasks, and problem solving
  • 20% from feedback and from observing and working with role models
  • 10% from formal training.

tribal knowledge scaling

Key to the 70/20 for technical teams is access to tribal knowledge or the combination of information about who to go to (“know who”) and how things get done in your organization (“know how”).

No matter where on your journey towards a culture of learning at your organization, chances are you could be sharing tribal knowledge better.
