For over 100 years, businesses have been applying Pareto’s Principle to the benefit of their business. Simply put, the Principle, also known as the 80/20 Rule, states that 80% of the benefit comes from 20% of the effort.

In IT, you know this all too well.

You likely spend too much of your time fixing little problems with small solutions. Reconfiguring a group of servers and testing those configs may take you days or weeks to accomplish, but they have very little to do with advancing your overall plan or meeting your goals.  Same thing for troubleshooting routers, running disaster recovery tests, and performing compliance reviews. These are all things that are necessary for making your business run, but have little effect on making your business grow.

The first step to making the highest and best use of an IT partner is understanding Pareto’s Principle and how it affects you. If you reduce the time spent on minor tasks and necessary repetitive work, you will be free to focus on the 20% that makes you truly invaluable to the company.
