Using the “80 to 20” Principle in Business

Almost everyone in his personal life and business spends time, energy and money on things that are indirectly related to our happiness and values ​​for others. Learn to attach importance to those few people and events that give meaning to life and provide maximum income.

What do language, cinema and the Internet have in common? Perhaps a lot, but one key similarity is that all of these are pronounced examples of the exceptionally useful law of force, which always indicates where more can be obtained for less.

In this case (as in the case of a large “staff turnover”), the management system is tempted to assess employee motivation in order to make feasible adjustments to it. For this purpose, a study is being undertaken, the main form of which is a questionnaire. Continue reading
