Efficiency and effectiveness are the terms related to the management. They are felt to be the same words but actually both are different words. Efficiency refers to the extent a job is done in right way. Effectiveness refers to how much performed job is useful. Efficiency is the ratio of output to input but effectiveness is the comparison of the desired output and actual output. Both are boarder terms. Efficiency is process oriented while effectiveness is not process oriented. For being successful, the process should be effective and efficient as well.
Efficiency is an process oriented while effectiveness is not process oriented.
Efficiency is an effort oriented while effectiveness is not effort oriented.
Efficiency is restricted to the present condition while effectiveness keeps the long term consideration.

Efficiency refers to the extent a job is done in right way. It is about doing right things. Scientifically efficiency is the ration of output to the input of any process. It is our desire to get the maximum output with minimum input, means we want the efficiency high. It is an effort oriented and process oriented as well. The goal of a task also depends upon it. Efficiency is time dependent. Efficiency is restricted to the present condition.
Effectiveness refers to how much performed job is useful. It is about completing tasks and achieving goals. It is the measure of the process continuously to meet the actual output according to desired output. It is neither effort nor process oriented. It is goal oriented but don’t depend upon time. Effectiveness keeps the long term consideration.
