From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2080 software concept was developed from 2005 by elaborating on the existing Pareto principle, or "80/20" rule which states, in short, that in IT projects 80% of the work is done before 20% of completion time, and the remaining 20% will take up 80% of the time.[citation needed]

While known to developers, this rule often creates a lot of frustration with managers.[citation needed] The 2080 Development concept further elaborates this principle to include functionality, build or buy decisions, and prototypes using agile methods.[citation needed]
