MISSION STATEMENT

It answers the pivotal question “What is our business and why we are in existence?” A clear mission statement is essential for effectively

establishing objectives and formulating strategies.

Sometimes called a creed statement, a statement of purpose, a statement

of philosophy, a statement of beliefs, a statement of business principles, or

a statement “defining our business,” a mission statement reveals what an

organization wants to be and whom it wants to serve.

All organizations have a reason for being, even if strategists have not consciously transformed this reason into writing. Carefully prepared

statements of vision and mission are widely recognized by both

practitioners and academicians as the first step in strategic management

IN PETER F. DRUCKER’S WORDS

A business mission is the foundation for priorities, strategies, plans, and

work assignments. It is the starting point for the design of managerial jobs

and, above all, for the design of managerial structures. Nothing may seem

simpler or more obvious than to know what a company’s business is.

A steel mill makes steel, a railroad runs trains to carry freight and passengers, an insurance company underwrites fire risks, and a bank lends

money. Actually, What is our business?” is almost always a difficult

question and the right answer is usually anything but obvious. The answer to this question is the first responsibility of strategists. Only strategists can make sure that this question receives the attention it deserves and that the answer makes sense and enables the business to plot its course and

set its objectives
