BA Competency Shifts - 70/20/10 Model (Part 5 of 5)

 

The 70-20-10 model is a proven way to develop skills and competencies. It mixes:

 

  • Doing - 70% of development

  • Learning through others - 20% of development

  • Using more formal learning resources - the remaining 10%

 

 

At Be Positive, we use this as the basis for all personal development and it is reflected in colleagues’ personal development plans and objectives. Here are some examples of each of the components.

 

 

70% - Examples of learning through 'doing':

 

  • Planned assignments for skills and competency development

  • Secondments or cover for other roles e.g. technical roles for data or processing roles for robotics

  • Ask BAs to be a change champion for a specific initiative

  • Speak at internal or external events

  • Scribe / facilitate at lessons learned for different types of project

  • Share examples of best practice – everyone has this in their objectives

  • Apprenticeship – sideways move into a role in a specialist skillset

 

 

20% - Learn & Develop Through Others

 

  • Peer reviews of different types of deliverables

  • Run lunch and learn sessions, team meetings

  • Shadowing and apprenticeship

  • Formal coaching and mentoring

  • Buddy up with colleagues

  • Use online networks such as LinkedIn

  • YouTube videos and podcasts

 

 

10% - Learn & Develop Through Formal Training

 

  • Run Courses and workshops

  • Attended local and national interest groups and conferences

  • Provide eLearning courses

  • Professional qualifications and certifications
