The 80 - 20 Principle

Also known as the Pareto's Law, the 80-20 principle is widely used in management and marketing. Some of the common applications that I could think not are as follows:
  • 80 percent of results come from 20 percent of efforts
  • 80 percent of activity will require 20 percent of resources
  • 80 percent of the work will be done by 20 percent of resources
  • 80 percent of usage is by 20 percent of users
  • 80 percent of the difficulty in achieving something lies in 20 percent of the challenge
  • 80 percent of revenue comes from 20 percent of customers
  • 80 percent of problems come from 20 percent of causes
  • 80 percent of profit comes from 20 percent of the product range
  • 80 percent of complaints come from 20 percent of customers
  • 80 percent of sales will come from 20 percent of sales people
  • 80 percent of corporate pollution comes from 20 percent of corporations
  • 80 percent of work absence is due to 20 percent of staff
  • 80 percent of road traffic accidents are cause by 20 percent of drivers
  • 80 percent of a restaurant's turnover comes from 20 percent of its menu
