The word effective is used as an adjective and a noun—effective means to be successful and triumphant in producing the anticipated results. The word effective is used to describe nouns like medications, advice, writing, speaking, and so on and so forth.

It means working in an extremely well -organized manner. Efficient, on the other hand, means reaching maximum productivity with minimal effort or expense. Efficient originated from late middle English. It is only utilized as an adjective in certain circumstances.

It may be used to describe nouns such as teacher, player, worker, artist, and other similar words and descriptions. The adverb form of efficiency is efficient, while the adverb form of effective is effective.

When it comes to a business, it is important to be both effective and efficient. Each person needs to know their goals to see which they should focus on to ensure the company is successful. To be effective is to be successful and bringing on a type of result. To be efficient is to be productive. An example of being effective is "Joe was effective in meeting all of the sales goals for the month." An example of being efficient is "The new Sales team is more efficient than the last team, for they take seventy percent more calls a day."
