What is a Vision Statement A short inspiring declaration of what the organization intends to become or to achieve at some point in the future What is a Mission Statement and what should it say Mission statements and vision statements are very different. A mission statement should be a short and concise statement of goals and priorities. A mission statement should answer four questions 1. What do we do? What is the purpose of the origination 2. How do we do it? What’s unique about the origination 3. For whom do we do it? Who is our customers and stakeholders 4. What are our values and beliefs? Three main benefits attributed to a mission statement 1. They help companies focus their strategy by defining some boundaries within which to operate 2. They define the dimensions along which an organization performance is measured and judged 3. They suggest standards for individuals ethical behavior

A goal is a long-range aim for a specific period. It must be specific and realistic. Action Plans Once everything is in place, your vision, mission statement, strategic planning and goals are all in writing how do you accomplish them. Set action plans that are detailed, easy to follow. Distribute them and start working them to achieve your vision.
