Organizational Culture Discussions: Effectiveness vs Efficiency
Effectiveness vs Efficiency Cover

Many people confuse the terms ‘efficiency’ vs. ‘effectiveness’, or they see them as the same thing. They are anything but.

This presentation covers why focusing on a culture of Effectiveness is so much more productive, and why a focus on Efficiency can actually hurt your organization. Whether its agility, adaptability, social connectedness, social business, or becoming a responsive organization that is your objective. This seemingly subtle distinction will prove to be a useful tool in your toolbox.

Cheers,

    Really good piece. Had never much thought about the distinctions before. Funny thing is, one would think efficiency is valued over effectiveness in large orgs but in fact, from my experience anyway, size matters little. It’s a cultural thing.
