The OSF, or On-the-Job, Social and Formal Model for Learning and Development is a commonly used formula within the training profession to describe the optimal sources of learning by successful managers. It holds that individuals obtain approximately 70 percent of their knowledge from job-related experiences, 20 percent from social interactions with others, and only 10 percent from formal educational events.

Most companies or institutions provide education for their employees – all the way from a handbook to a “XYZ University”. Education is mandatory for all employees, and everyone feels that training has done their job.  Why, the courses are even “refreshed” every five or ten years!

Cooperatives know that employees NEVER stop learning – accurate or inaccurate information, correct or incorrect procedures, every day, in every way, employees keep learning. With you can control the 90% of informal education, and help employees and Board Members find the correct, accurate and appropriate information for their job.

You can even build support groups and mentors to improve the experience.  Of course, we want employees to recommend changes and improvements to the content.  After all, who are the BEST subject-matter-experts?  Coop employees and Board members do the job successfully, safely and proficiently!

Here's what a student has to say:

(The Learn.Coop online course) …is very beneficial, especially for prospective candidates for Trustees. It is a two week experience, I feel, (that) has packed two years of learning into.
