Ron Jeffries on Focusing on Value

If you can focus your work on the 20% of a system which brings 80% of the system’s total value to your customer, then what should you do with the remaining 80% of work? 

Ron  Jeffries has a great article, The "Eighty-Twenty" Rule, with a pretty stunning graph and conclusion: forget the remaining 80% and go find another four projects in which you spend 20% of the time hitting the 80% mark on each project.

As Instapundit would say, read the whole thing.
