The "80/20 Rule" says that 80% of all products and services are sold by just 20 percent of the salespeople.
An analysis of several sales organizations involving 28,000 professional sales people reached the conclusion that about half of the people in the study lacked the behavioural characteristics required to effectively perform the duties of a sales job. They should never have been hired for sales positions in the first place. The study found that of the remaining 50%, half had the potential for success in sales, but were not hired to sell the right kind of product or service. The study concluded that only about 25% of those working in sales position have a good match with the work they are doing. Thus, the "80/20 Rule" is only "valid" because people lacking sales essentials get hired and others are not matched with the right products or services.
