Hi Subodh,
KRA = Key Result Areas
KPI = Key Performing Indicators
Key Result Areas are the areas of performance (i.e. which outline the profile of the employee). they in short outline the tasks that the employee has to perform and define the work that is expected out of him
Key Performance Indicators on the other hand are ones that indicate the steps or tasks to achieve the result areas
so we can say that kep performance indicators are the means which direct the employee to achieve his key result areas.

Hi friend, KRA = Key responsibilities Area, its related to Job analysis in which you can analysis the Job description and Job Specification. KPI = Key Performing Indicators Regards Vikas Kumar
From India, New Delhi


Key Result Area in simple Terms may be defined as Primary responsibilities of an Individual. The core area which each person is accountable. KRA's varies from Individual to Individual. Employees are predominantly appraised on their mutually agreed KRA's.

KRA' are always developed after the definition of "Job Purpose". Job purpose is understanding the requirement for the job.

To elucidate some eg. of KRA's for some Generic roles-

KRA's of a HR manager may be -


Training and Development.

Compensation Planning and Administration.

Statutory Compliance. etc...

Key Performance indicators or KPI are metrics used to define and measure progress towards Individual goals or KRA's. Key Performance Indicators are quantifiable measurements, agreed to beforehand, that reflect the critical success factors of an Individual. They differ from Individual to Indvidual. KPI's may also be called as KSI's ( Key Success Indicators).

Hope my explanation was clear. Do revert back if you have any queries and am sure our friends will share more views on the topic.

Best Regards, :) :)
