The 80/20 Principle: The Secret of Achieving More with Less
Santrauka: A new, updated 10th Annniversary edition of the business classic. "Congratulations! The 80/20 Principle is terrific." —Al Ries, bestselling author of Focus and Positioning "Through multiple examples, and a punchy down-to-earth commentary, Koch offers the first really useful advice we've seen in a management book for years." —Business Age In the ten years since its original publication The 80/20 Principle has become one of the decade’s most original, provocative and powerful books and a business classic and was named as one of GQ’s Top 25 Business Books of the 20th Century. It has sold over 500,000 copies and been translated into 30 languages. This special 10th anniversary edition of the bestselling The 80/20 Principle contains an entirely new chapter, ‘The Yin and Yang of the Principle’, in which Koch responds to the thousands of reader responses to the book – including a rap song! – and uses this new material to reach a new level of awareness and understanding of the true power of the principle. And it is powerful: the 80/20 principle – the fact that 80% of results flow from 20% of causes – is the one true principle of highly effective people and organisations. The 80/20 Principle shows how you can achieve much more with much less effort, time and resources, simply by concentrating on that all-important 20%. The 80/20 principle is the key to controlling our lives. If we can latch on to the few powerful forces within and around us, we can leverage our efforts to multiply effectiveness. Most of what we do has trivial results. A little of what we do really matters. So if we focus on the latter, we can control events instead of being controlled by them, and achieve several times the results.
