How Can I Apply This Information Now?

The answer to that question is determined by the fact that the entire world of independent pharmacy is in turmoil. Many wicked problems exist, yet successful solutions can be found.

The Pareto principle can show you how to overcome:

  • The continued downward spiral of insurance payments
  • Government interventions
  • Where to put your time to get more results
  • Working far too many hours

Examples of the Pareto Principle at Work

  • 20% of your products produce 80% of your profits. However, the poorest performing 20% of your products are sucking profits out of your bank account. Get rid of them.
  • One-fifth of your pharmacy’s revenue turns into four-fifths of your profits. In fact, 1% of your customers may be contributing to 50% of your profits. Do you know which patients comprise this 1%?
  • Obsession with attracting more customers leads to more and more marginal customers. Costs rise and returns fall.

Success still comes from practicing proven principles within the realm of the business world. Master them and put them to good use, as they can make a huge difference in your future.
