```An Introduction to
80/20
February 27, 2014
As presented by Joe Hahn
What is 8020?
 Also called “Pareto Analysis”
 Discovered by Vilfredo Pareto in 1897
 80% of the output comes from 20% of the
input
 Consider it a rule of nature
 Put simply … a few things are critically
important, while the vast majority of things are
worthless
The Premise of the 80/20 Principle
 Transaction activity, product variation, customer
multiplicity, and complexity are the root cause
of all overhead cost
 20% of the items in any uniform group will
drive 80% of it
 Success comes from eliminating the complexity
and focusing on the core products and markets
 Treat them differently
Use 80/20 to study every
Products
Customers
Suppliers
Inventory
Product Cost
Sales Force
Geographic
Distribution
Anything you want
to study
So…
80/20 is the art of doing a few things
spectacularly well…at the chosen
expense of the rest!!!
You are better off than 98% of all
Americans IF…
 You finish high school
 You have a job, any job
 You get married and stay married
 You have no credit card debt
Want your children to be in the top
10% of all students?
 Make sure they get enough sleep
 Make sure they eat properly
 Make sure they show up for school
 Make sure they pay attention
 Make sure they do their homework
Rule of 72
 72/interest rate = number of years for your
money to double
 \$1,000 invested today at 2% is \$2,000 in 2044
 \$1,000 invested today at 12% is \$64,000 in
2044

Arguments
Absolute Rules:
Classic Arguments:
Not every customer
is a good customer!
“The small customers
of today are the big
customers of tomorrow.”
We make much
more money on our
biggest customers
than we think we
do…and lose much
more on our smallest
ones than we think
we do.
“If we get rid of the
little customers, we
have nothing to fall back
on if we lose a big one.”
“Some big customers
vice versa.”
