Mission & Vision Statements

Vision - "The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they become obvious!"
- John Sculley Former CEO of Pepsi and Apple Computer

Description:

A Mission Statement states clearly what an organisation does, what its purpose is and answers the questions "What do we do". There are a number of questions that can be asked when analysing and drafting a Mission Statement:

  • Does the Mission Statement describe an inspiring purpose?
  • Does the Statement describe the organisation's responsibility to its stakeholders?
  • Does the Mission Statement define a business domain?
  • Does the Statement describe the strategic position in a way that identifies specific competitive advantage(s)?
  • Does the statement reflect the culture of the organisation?
  • Is the statement clear and easy to understand?

Vision Statements provide guidance regarding the future direction of an organisation. It answers the question "Where are we going?". Vision statements have three important components:

  • Quantification of the highest level success indicator.
