There are two 70/20/10 models in business: education and managing innovation.
70/20/10 in Education 
The 70/20/10 Model is a Learning and Development model based on research by Michael M. Lombardo and Robert W. Eichinger for the Center for Creative Leadership. The concept states that development typically begins with realization of a need and motivation to do something about it, and that a blend of different learning approaches "in concert" can provide powerful learning. Lombardo and Eichinger stated that "the odds are that development will be":
- about 70% from on-the-job experiences, tasks, and problem solving.
- about 20% from feedback and from working around good or bad examples of the need.
- about 10% from courses and reading.
Many businesses and learning institutions have embraced this approach; for business example, Creganna-Tactx Medical and for a learning institution see the Princeton University Learning Process .
70/20/10 in Managing Innovation 
This model dictates that, to cultivate innovation, employees should utilize their time in the following ratio:
- 70% of time should be dedicated to core business tasks.
- 20% of time should be dedicated to projects related to the core business.
- 10% of time should be dedicated to projects unrelated to the core business.
