Learning Objective:
The students are expected to learn about the characteristics and components of a good mission
Learning Outcome:
After going through this activity, the students would be able to know that how to develop a mission
and vision statement for an international firm.
The Concept:
It is generally understood that clear mission and vision statement is needed before alternative
strategies can be formulated and implemented. Organization involves many managers in the process
of developing these two statements. Managers are supposed to read the maximum articles on these
statements that enable them to know the background information of developing a vision and mission
statement. Then every manager is supposed to develop a vision and mission statement for the
organization that further merge these statements into a single document after modifications,
addition and deletion by a designated committee of top managers. This is how all the managers
provide their inputs into the support of final documents and suggest the appropriate strategies.
A good mission statement must have to identify the utility of a firm’s products to its customers. This
is why most of the academicians, strategists and practitioners of strategic management feel that an
effective mission statement should include nine components. As the mission statement is the most
visible and public part of a strategic management process, so it is important that it includes nine
characteristics as summarized in Table 1‐1, as well as the following nine components:
Customers—Who are the firm’s customers?
Products or services—What are the firm’s major products or services?
Markets—Geographically, where does the firm compete?
Technology—Is the firm technologically current?
Concern for survival, growth, and profitability—Is the firm committed to growth and financial
Philosophy—What are the basic beliefs, values, aspirations, and ethical priorities of the firm?
Self‐concept—What is the firm’s distinctive competence or major competitive advantage?
Concern for public image—Is the firm responsive to social, community, and environmental concerns?
Concern for employees—Are employees a valuable asset of the firm?
