Why the Name 80/20?

Historical portrait of Vilfredo Pareto, an Italian economist and sociologist.
Vilfredo Pareto

In business, the 80/20 theory is a powerful tool. This theory is called Pareto's Law after Vilfredo Pareto (1843-1923), an Italian economist and sociologist who said that 80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts.

We run our organization based upon this theory and everyone shares in the advantages.
