KRA vs KPI: Performance Management Tools | By BMA & HR Club Philippines

Difference between KRA vs KPI?

KRA and KPI are both important performance management tools used by organizations to measure and evaluate the performance and progress of employees towards achieving organizational goals. However, there are some key differences between the two:

  • KRA (Key Result Area) refers to the main areas of responsibility or goals that an individual, team, or department is expected to achieve within a given period. It is a broad statement of the specific outcomes that are expected from an employee or a team.

  • KPI (Key Performance Indicator), on the other hand, is a specific metric or measurement that is used to evaluate the progress towards achieving the KRA. KPIs are more specific than KRAs and are used to track the performance of an individual or team against specific goals or objectives.

  • KRAs are typically set at the beginning of the performance period and remain relatively stable throughout the year. KPIs, on the other hand, are more dynamic and may change over time based on the progress towards achieving the KRA.

  • KRAs are often used to define the overall performance expectations for an individual, team, or department, while KPIs are used to measure and track progress towards achieving those expectations.

In summary, KRAs and KPIs are both important tools for performance management, but they serve different purposes. KRAs are the broad areas of responsibility or goals that an individual or team is expected to achieve, while KPIs are specific metrics or measurements used to evaluate progress towards achieving those goals.
