Capability vs. Performance  

Capabilities Management-Overview

Performance without capabilities can best be described as steroidal. This chapter provides the context of why building capability is as critical as building performance. It dwells into the difference between capability & performance, core vs. non-core capability, mapping and tracking the capabilities.


Capability vs. Performance


Performance is not synonymous with capability. One can have a burst of short-term performance, with minimal capabilities. The capabilities are built with a sense of commitment and perseverance. Performance management is more towards measuring and tracking the outcome or the end-result. Capabilities in most cases strengthen the inputs to the results.
