To search for nontrivial proper normal subgroups is often the first step in the investigation of a finite group. For example, if the group G has such a normal subgroup N, then in proofs by induction one frequently gets information about N and G/N, allowing one to derive the desired result for G (e.g., 6.1.2 on page 122).
