How to calculate win percentage

To determine your win percentage divide your total amount of opportunities by the number of wins you've earned. The resulting number is your win percentage.

Knowing your win percentage is a vital metric in gauging the success of your business, sales, or athletic team. To help make your like a little easier, I've created a super simple calculator that will determine your win percentage in mere moments.

If your calculations aren't so straightforward, here is how to calculate win percentage with ties.

  • Count all games: Wins, Losses, and Ties.

  • Use points: 1 for a Win, 0.5 for a Tie.

  • Sum points: Wins (1 point each) + Ties (0.5 points each).

  • Calculate percentage: (Total Points / Total Games) x 100.

  • Example: 10 Wins, 5 Ties, 5 Losses (20 games) = 62.5% win rate.

Simply varying the original calculation with the one above should allow you to easily calculate winning percentage with ties.

If you'd like to use this in a spreadsheet instead of using your CRM, here is a formula and step-by-instructions.

How to Calculate Win Percentage in Excel

Win Percentage Formula: =WINS/(WINS+LOSSES+TIES)

  • Step 1: Enter the number of wins, losses, and ties in separate cells (e.g., A1 for wins, B1 for losses, C1 for ties).

  • Step 2: In a new cell, enter the formula: =A1/(A1+B1+C1).

  • Step 3: Press Enter to calculate the win percentage. Format the cell as a percentage for readability.
