80/20 Management is a book you can read and finish between one to two hours.
The book is helpful to a professional or manager interested in working smarter and achieving better results.
80/20 Principle or Pareto Principle states that 80% of results comes from 20% of effort. A professional will need to identify that all-important 20% of focus, and this is a skill in itself.
Julie-Ann Amos in 80/20 Management explains how Pareto’s rule can be applied to:
(1) time management and delegation;
(2) problem-solving and decision-making;
(3) recruitment and training;
(4) teamwork and performance; and
(5) people problems and change management.
The idea of 80/20 is to help galvanise us to shift our focus on to the 20% of effort that actually achieves 80% of results.
Efficiency and effectiveness are linked to Pareto’s rule.
Efficiency is doing things well.
Effectiveness is doing the right things – i.e. the 20%.
Combining the two Es helps us to do the right things in the best way, achieving maximum results with minimum effort.
This is a quality book that will aid our efficiency and effectiveness at work and in life.
