MethodAs a basic approach, you can list out all the actions that you can potentially take to reach a goal and then rank them according to impact. The Pareto principle predicts that the top 20% of items on a complete list will produce 80% of the results.
BasisThe Pareto principle is popular in a number of fields because it can often be seen in observed data. For example, it is often said that 20% of customers represent 80% of profits.
