Company Vision And Mission


A company's vision and mission can play a huge role in shaping corporate culture and employee morale. A vision statement lays out what an organization wants to be. It focuses on the future; it is inspirational; it provides clear decision-making criteria; and it is timeless. On the other hand, mission statement outlines what the company is now. It focuses on today; it identifies the customer(s); it identifies the critical process(es); an dit states the level of performance.

Vision statements aim to answer the question; "If we could develop exactly the kind of company we wanted, what would it be like?" Mission statements, on the other hand, look for the answer to "why are we doing this?" Also, the mission statement is the motivational component of the vision statement and defines what is important to the individual, department and the organization.

The benefits of a clear vision and mission statement will be realized if they state the organisation's present situation and what the desired outcome will look like, and if they are written in a way that is clear and can bring intentions to life.

In Setting Mission Statements, Some Key Questions To Ask Are

  • How will we benefit? Who else will benefit?

  • What will it do for us to fulfill our vision?

  • What is most important about this work?

  • Why does this work matter?

  • What is our purpose?

  • What are we doing this?

Although vision and mission statements vary from one organisation to another, the common factors are that they state what it wants to be in the future, and the critical factors that guide its decision-making.
