Contrast between Effectiveness and Efficiency


Efficiency means to do something in a right way. According to science it can be defined as the output to input ratio and making the target of getting high level of output by using fewer resources.


On other hand Effectiveness means to do right thing at the right time. It always measures the desired output with the actual output.


Since efficiency is all about focusing on the process, importance is given to the “means” of doing things whereas effectiveness focuses on achieving the “end” goal rather than how we get there.
