How people actually develop - 70/20/10 rule

Many moons ago Sun introduced SunTOPS (Sun's Talent Optimization System) for development planning. Included in the notes, sadly I no longer have a copy, was this intriguing diagram:

how people write development plans versus how people actually develop

I've since found what I believe to be the underlying research behind this, it's the 70/20/10 model. There is a reference to it in the Princeton University Learning Process.

I've not found a reference to the idea that developmentactually plans usually turn this in its head - in other words, we incorrectly assume that development is 70% training, 20% learning from others, 10% job experience. If anyone knows where this came from please let me know.

According to Princeton:

70/20/10 learning concept was developed by Morgan McCall, Robert W. Eichinger, and Michael M. Lombardo at the Center for Creative Leadership and is specifically mentioned in The Career Architect Development Planner 3rd edition by Michael M. Lombardo and Robert W. Eichinger.

The seriously chunky and expensive The Career Architect Development Planner isn't in my local library or searchable on-line. I'd love to take a peek :-)
