    The Sales Dept. is often discounted, but as close to owning a business as one can get without actually owning the business. In fact, Sales offers benefits the owner may not have. The Salesperson may receive greater compensation than the owner/investor, all without risk, other than losing the job.

    Applied Industrial Psychology sources best investment of resources, be it time, engineering, studies and etc. One size does not fit all. Therefore, a productive vacuum Sales Person may be far beyond the comfort zone when negotiating with a fortune 500 CEO. Both examples fit a specific personality.

    However, need for a similar, if not identical, comprehensible job description remains, no different than a business model is required for short term/long term business success.

    Neil, I support your comments. However, before, during and after providing a solution, a model is required. A on-line model is little different than a General Business model, even a field Representative model. All three require a Job Description, to be served by a person (s) with an appropriate Industrial Psychology profile. Otherwise, a square peg is often forced to fit in a round hole. ( a square peg in a round hole may work for some period of time, but sooner or later, the solution will self destruct)

    The study/implementation of applied Industrial Psychology starts well before higher education learning. Under study employees/business's, most often, die on the vine because third party influence motivated the wrong path for the skill set of those involved.
