The 80/20 Principle

The Secret of Achieving More with Less

By Richard Koch and Richard Koch

  • Paperback
  • £10.99

The business classic and global bestseller. This new edition outlines a fresh understanding of the true power of the principle.

In the ten years since its first publication, The 80/20 Principle has become a business classic and a global bestseller. In this new edition Richard Koch outlines a fresh understanding of the true power of the principle.

And it is powerful: the 80/20 principle - the counter-intuitive yet prevalent fact that 80% of results flow from 20% of causes - is the one true principle of highly effective people and organisations and has stood the test of time. Many thousands of people throughout the world have found the principle useful at work, in their careers and in their personal lives. Koch outlines how with the 80/20 Principle we can achieve much more with much less effort, time and resources simply by concentrating on the all-important 20% thus controlling events instead of being controlled by them, and with several times the results.

Superteams

Matthew Syed
Authors:
Matthew Syed

Great teams rarely happen by accident; they happen by design. And that design is rooted in the motivational and strategic bonds that tie them together. But what makes true cohesion? How do you create the right combination of skills in team members? Does information flow between them in a fluent way? Are their actions harmoniously coordinated?In a journey to understand 'Superteams', this book takes us into the killing fields of Iraq after the 2003 invasion, the flourishing of knowledge in Renaissance Italy, the Death Zone at the summit of Mount Everest, a nuclear submarine patrolling the world's oceans, a rugby team dressed all in black, the high-tech industries of Silicon Valley, and in to the Manchester United dressing room during the reign of Sir Alex Ferguson. Drawing from the latest research in psychology, systems theory, economics, and neuroscience, Matthew Syed, the No.1 bestselling author of Black Box Thinking, shows how environments can be consciously engineered for teams to gel. And how, in high performing teams, the knowledge, ideas and information used by different individuals can yield successes far beyond the strategic skill or performance of any single member. In our increasingly complex world we all need to learn how to maximize our collective potential - across industry, the military, technology, business, politics, sport and academia - and turn our teams in to "Superteams".
