Effective means that what you produce and deliver, is relevant. Effective thus means that what you do has a favourable effect on those who use your product or service. The world regards successful people as being effective. Unlike efficiency, effectiveness has external focus. Effectiveness is about the result you produce. Intent drives effectiveness. In that, intent must be relevant. In business you are effective if your customers describe you so. A private hospital might offer effective childbirth by having a gynaecologist, a paediatrician, an anaesthetist, and four nurses available for the labour. This contradicts an efficient childbirth, where we would only have one doctor doing the work of four. It is often hard to create equilibrium between effectiveness and efficiency. To decide effectiveness, we must weigh Relevance against Outputs. In this Relevance will be the numerator and Outputs the denominator.
Effectiveness is the capability of producing a desired result or the ability to produce desired output. When something is deemed effective, it means it has an intended or expected outcome, or produces a deep, vivid impression.
