The 80/20 Principle: The Secret of Achieving More with Less. In the 20 years since its first publication,
The 80/20 Principle has become a business classic and a global bestseller. In this new edition, Richard Koch outlines a fresh understanding of the true power of the principle.
And it is powerful: the 80/20 principle – the counter-intuitive yet prevalent fact that 80 percent of results flow from 20 percent of causes – is the one true principle of highly effective people and organizations and has stood the test of time. Many thousands of people throughout the world have found the
principle useful at work, in their careers and in their personal lives. Koch outlines how with the 80/20 Principle we can achieve much more with much less effort, time and resources simply by concentrating on the all-important 20 percent, thus controlling events instead of being controlled by them and with several times the results.
With a simple observation that in his garden, 80 percent of the peas were borne by 20 percent of the pods, Vilfredo Pareto created a revolutionary principle. Known as the Pareto’s principle or the rule of 80-20, the core of this principle lies in the fact, that 80 percent of the results which one receives in a field of activity is a result of 20 percent of the efforts.
In the case of business, merely 20 percent of the customers help in generating 80 percent of the revenue. This principle is developed and presented in a systematic way by Richard Koch. He not only explains the intricacies of the principle but also goes a step ahead by explaining the reasons that make this principle work. It is a secret used by highly successful people, which is made known to the common man through this book.
