Also known as the Pareto Principle, this guideline suggests that 80% of the value of effort can be achieved in 20% of the time. It is a constant reminder in the industry to focus on the most important aspects of a project, rather than getting mired in the details, trying to achieve 100% of the results in far less time. In consulting, this term is used to imply that 80% of an assignment can be finished in 20% of the time.
