Beating the “80/20 Rule” for Dramatic Sales Increases

In this example of a 200 person sales force that produces $200 million in sales, we apply the 80/20 rule (which is typical), meaning that the top 20% of the sales force will produce $160 million in sales. The bottom 20% will produce only $6 million in sales.

If we assign or replace the bottom 20% with candidates that just meet or exceed our predictive competency levels for success, sales will increase by a minimum of $30 million and a more probable $70 million.
