How anyone can be more effective with less effort by learning how to identify and leverage the 80/20 principle--the well-known, unpublicized secret that 80 percent of all our results in business and in life stem from a mere 20 percent of our efforts.The 80/20 principle is one of the great secrets of highly effective people and organizations.Did you know, for example, that 20 percent of customers account for 80 percent of revenues? That 20 percent of our time accounts for 80 percent of the work we accomplish? The 80/20 Principle shows how we can achieve much more with much less effort, time, and resources, simply by identifying and focusing our efforts on the 20 percent that really counts. Although the 80/20 principle has long influenced today's business world, author Richard Koch reveals how the principle works and shows how we can use it in a systematic and practical way to vastly increase our effectiveness, and improve our careers and our companies.The unspoken corollary to the 80/20 principle is that little of what we spend our time on actually counts. But by concentrating on those things that do, we can unlock the enormous potential of the magic 20 percent, and transform our effectiveness in our jobs, our careers, our businesses, and our lives.

For those proclaiming this book to be life-saver, you will be in for a shock to know that what this book expounds is one of the gazillion other data analysis methods. Let me explain, there is data and there is information. What you do to the data and in appropriate context makes it information. What...
I like the concept. Many non-fiction books with one principle idea are too long for the material and end up repeating the ideas or dragging out the explanations. I think this is a good presentation that makes the sound-bites easier to remember. The places where he broke the fourth wall looked a litt...
I read most of this book around 2004 or 2005 I think. I just picked it up and finished it off. It has some good insights, particularly in the first 3/4 of the book. I wasn't necessarily reading it for "business" but life/church advice. It's a simple concept that can be easily summed up, so I recomme...
