    If I am dealing with a situation of 40% sales reps being unproductive. Isn’t this a binomial distribution which gets approximated to normal becuase we are talking of 500 reps

    As written your question is meaningless. You will need to give some idea of what it is that you are trying to do. For example, if you are running an analysis of some kind and the outcome is productive yes/no where you have an operational definition of “productive” and you are looking for possible relationships between measured inputs and the yes/no outcome then it is a binomial situation and it has nothing to do with a normal distribution. On the other hand, if it is something else then the answer could be yes/no/maybe.

    @mayank_vj how are you measuring productivity? If your operational definition of unproductive is based on some kind of quantitative measure (e.g., sales calls per week, hit rate, etc.), you will almost always be better off analyzing that quantitative data directly rather than converting it to binomial data.
