Weed & Feed: Real World Applications of the 80/20 Principle

  • Have aggressive growth goals?
  • Ever have trouble getting everything done?

  • Do your employees know what’s REALLY important?


Many business leaders think the key to growth is motivating their employees to work harder and do more.  Yet when your employees don’t have a clear understanding of the priorities of the company, they  focus their energies in the wrong places.  The result is everyone working longer hours without improving results.  Your time is too valuable to spend it trying to keep up with unnecessary activities that add little or nothing to the bottom line.


During this webinar, you will learn how to improve focus to increase sales, profit and cash flow.  You will learn counterintuitive techniques to improve teamwork by establishing clear priorities for employees at all levels of the organization.


Learn directly from a CEO with  a traditional manufacturing background who developed a process that increased operating profit from $1.1 million to $5.5 million in less than three years.  We’ll discuss one of his real world case studies  to learn :


  • What causes a lack of  focus
  • How to uncover what market segments you serve
  • How to define customer value
  • How to set priorities with limited information
