The 80/20 Manager

The Secret to Working Less and Achieving More
By Richard Koch (Electronic Book, 2013)
Bestselling author Richard Koch shows managers how to apply the 80/20 Principle to achieve exceptional results at work--without stress or long hours.

In his bestselling book The 80/20 Principle, Richard Koch showed readers how to put the 80/20 Principle--the idea that 80 percent of results come from just 20 percent of effort--into practice in their personal lives. Now in THE 80/20 MANAGER, he demonstrates how to apply the principle to management. An 80/20 manager learns to focus only on the issues that really matter, achieving exceptional results, and feeling successful everyday while working less hard in fewer hours.

A large number of managers--especially in these difficult times--feel completely overwhelmed. Their inboxes are overflowing and they constantly struggle to finish their to-do lists, leaving little time for the things that really matter. THE 80/20 MANAGER shows a new way to look at management--and at life--to enjoy work and build a successful and fulfilling career.

  • "The 80/20 Principle is the cornerstone of result-based living. Read this new book and use it." (author of The Four-Hour Work Week).

  • "All the strands of Koch's uniquely powerful thinking poured into one volume. Packed with counterintuitive advice, this is the rare business book that can genuinely transform your life and work prospects. It's already given me a stack of invaluable ideas." (author of Never Too Late To Be Great).

  • "It's time for managers to stop wasting time on bureaucracy and start working on the few things that count to create value.  This book shows precisely how."

  • "The genius of the 80/20 Principle is that it is counter-intuitive. The genius of Richard Koch is that he makes the counter-intuitive accessible.  Read this book and you will enjoy it. Live this book and you will find it a game-changer." (author of The Dream Manager).

  • "Richard Koch sees so clearly that good management and leadership come from within, and that liberating talent in yourself and in others is the key to success. This is a must-read book for anyone who wants to be a great leader and achieve extraordinary results."

  • "A great book, completely different from The 80/20 Principle, written exclusively for managers, and intensely practical."

  • "Simple ideas that can turn your business and your life around. I highly recommend it." (author of War in the Boardroom).
