Raytheon Symposium 2015
Shaping the Future of Learning

June 25, 2015
Frankfurt, Germany
09:00 - 14:00

The 70-20-10 model for learning and development suggests successful learning is done through three clusters of experience: 70% of learning takes place ‘on the job’ through day-to-day tasks (social learning); 20% of learning comes from drawing on the knowledge of others in the workplace by exposure to coaching, feedback, and networking; and 10% through formal learning interventions (traditionally structured courses and programs).

The 2015 Raytheon Symposium focuses on the new role of learning enablers that enhance the 70-20-10 model through supporting the learning experience in the workspace, helping people work smarter, and using new and innovative channels, technologies and methods.

At this exclusive invitation-only meeting bringing together 40 HR, Learning & Development, and Training leaders, executives will gain insights into how companies can best embed social learning using some of the latest strategies and technologies to ensure key personnel are learning in the most productive way, and that “real” learning takes place and endures.

The event is built around presentations and interactive group discussions where you will hear from:

  • Simone Lietz-Gresens, Vice President Human Resources Europe at MasterCard, about how MasterCard is implementing multifaceted experiential learning
  • Bert De Coutere, Solutions Architect at the Center for Creative Leadership (creators of the 70-20-10 model), on how challenging assignments drive experiential learning and about the research that originated the 70-20-10 framework of development and what it truly says
  • Aushima Thakur, Senior Manager for Communities of Practice at Philips, on how to embed learning and social learning into the day-to-day work
  • Talat Riaz, Senior Training & Development Specialist at Raytheon Professional Services, about the technology platforms that foster social learning, performance tools for company impact, and the social media tools that improve learning programs
  • Your peers on what the key learning and development challenges are
  • Group work on how best to design solutions for your business challenges.
