Decile Analysis

I need to do decile analysis on the attached data set (which shows average cycle time by numbers of deals).
We have a target goal of 17 days for deal processing and need to trim down some cycle times somewhere to achieve targets. Therefore, if I know that 10% of deals hit aspiration, what kind of movement has to occur on the other 90% to allow us to hit our goals?  So if I could shave off 5 days on deciles 6-10 while keeping deciles 1 -5 static, what becomes the average?

                        Threshold                        Target                   Max
              20            17            14

Is this analysis possible in Excel? I ran the query in Oracle – PL/SQL – any easier way to do it there?

Thanks.

"what kind of movement has to occur"
The only information relating to "kind" that I see in your data are "DEALS" and "TOTAL_CYT"
and the only thing relating to "movement" that I see are numbers with different values.
So the only things an analysis of that data could tell you is whether you would want to change the number of "DEALS" or whether you would want to change the number of "TOTAL_CYT"
I'm not sure how such an analysis would be helpful to you.

How would I represent what you are saying with the data? What would you do differently to achieve a helpful analysis?
