  • Pareto's Principles Essay

    Introduction Pareto’s principle, also known as the 80/20 rule, defines an unequal relationship between any two factors. Understanding the 80/20 rule helps managers pinpoint causes of problems, measure employee productivity, and interpret product sales in order to improve the overall functionality of the organization. Pareto’s principle can also be tested and applied in science –researchers utilized the principle in cancer research. In all areas, the 80/20 rule helps society understand how to efficiently maximize benefits and minimize detriments. Pareto’s Principle Explained In 1906, Vilfredo Pareto, an Italian economist, noted that 80% of Italy was owned by 20% of the population. 35 years later, American management consultant and engineer, Joseph M. Juran, interpreted and applied Pareto’s finding to management. Using production and sales as an example, the 80/20 rule states that 20% of a company’s product line accounts for 80% of the company’s sales volume. Respectively, that 20% of the product line would occupy 80% of the company’s warehouse space. Pareto’s principle, in this case, helps the organization’s managers make intuitive decisions concerning production and sales. Benefits of Using Pareto’s Principle in Business Businesses use Pareto’s principle to maximize productivity and sales, contributing to the growth of the organization. Human Resource Management To improve productivity, the human resources (HR) manager can use the 80/20 rule to evaluate the performance of…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Paid Surrogacy

    Paid surrogate motherhood has become a subject undergoing intense research and scrutiny in recent years because of multiple cases, including baby M and many others.

In these gender roles men are confident and calm during difficult situations, but in reality this is untrue and men are not always confident in tragic situations and sometimes act irrationally. In society the perfect man should not be able to sew because a woman’s job to do housework, like…
