Vision Statement Defined
A vision statement describes the very long term goal for the organization, inspires the organization for greatness, and acts as a “North-star” for the organization to navigate its way to its future. It answers the following questions: ‘What will “achieving the vision” make the organization look like?’ With our achieved vision, ‘What will our membership be saying about the organization, how will our results be different from what they are today?’
Examples: ‘Be the world’s beer company. Through all of our products, services, and relationships, we will add to life’s enjoyment?’
‘To build a place where people can come to find and discover anything they might want to buy online.’
Mission Statement Defined
A Mission statement is the fundamental purpose of an organization. It is a concise statement of a business strategy developed from the customer’s perspective. It fits with the vision for the business, and answers three questions: “1. what do we do? 2. How do we do it? 3. Who do we do it for?”
Examples: ‘The Company is committed to bringing the best user experience to its customers through its innovative hardware, software, peripherals, and services’
‘We seek to be Earth’s most customer-centric organization for four primary customer sets: consumers, sellers, enterprises, and content creators’.
