The 80/20 rule can be applied to many different situations and suggests that a small number of causes or factors often have a disproportionate impact on outcomes.
For example, in business, the 80-20 principle might suggest that 80% of a company’s sales come from 20% of its products or customers.
The rule can be a useful tool for identifying areas of focus and making more efficient use of resources.
