In November 2008, the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) and i4cp conducted a study on informal learning. Forty-one percent of study respondents said that informal learning was already common in their company to a high or very high extent. An additional 34% said that it was occurring to a moderate extent in their workplace.
Aparna Nancherla, an associate editor for T+D magazine, interviewed i4cp CEO Kevin Oakes about the results of this informal learning study as well his insights on the subject. That interview is now available for download as a podcast. If you prefer to read rather than listen, the interview is also available in article format on ASTD's website.
