Difference Between a KPI and a KRA?
Ahmad Sultan Abdulla, Consultant, Malaysia, Member
Can anyone tell me the difference between a Key Performance Indicator (KPI) and a Key Result Area (KRA)?
There seems to be a confusion between the two. Any thoughts?

KRAs for Individuals versus KPIs for Organization, Dept. or Individual
Amit Ballal, Manager, Member
KRAs are generally considered to be applicable to individuals. Generally they are used to define how the performance of a person will be monitored.
KPIs can be KRAs if used to monitor performance of individual. KPIs can be used to measure the performance of organization, department or individual / any level.
