Diary studies on competence development at the workplace

Where do employees acquire knowledge to master everyday work tasks? This question is addressed by the University of Mannheim as part of a research project to review the 70-20-10 model. To find out if this is a workplace learning myth, employees from the insurance industry conducted digital diaries using the mQuest® ­Diary application.

Participants recorded their current or just completed work activities four times a day. The diary records contained information about the tasks, the assessment of the source of knowledge, the estimated learning gain, and the emotional experience of the employees during the activity.
