Q: What is the difference between goalsharing and gainsharing?  

There is a subtle distinction between the two programs though the terminology is often used interchangeably. Gainsharing plans are typically built on improvements over historical levels of productivity (e.g., scrap reduction; units produced; labor and a ratio of production). Goalsharing is based on, typically, one to five measures of future focused objectives that represent key drivers of the business' success.
