Setting the Context: Definitions

  • Efficient:

  • Performing or functioning in the best possible manner with the least waste of time and effort having and using requisite knowledge, skills and industry

  • Efficiency is derived from continuous process improvement----Re-engineering of processes

    “The highest degree of madness is to continue doing the same thing in the same way and expect to get different results” Albert Einstein
