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

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!!!

Absolute Rules vs Classic Arguments
Not every customer is a good customer! 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. Classic Arguments: “The small customers of today are the big customers of tomorrow.” “If we get rid of the little customers, we have nothing to fall back on if we lose a big one.” “Some big customers buy small products and vice versa.”
