Question description

A strategic vision describes the route a company intends to take in developing and strengthening its business.  It lays out the company’s strategic course in preparing for the future.”

“A strategic vision portrays a company’s future business scope (“where we are going”), whereas a company’s mission typically describes its present business purpose (“who we are, what we do, why we are here”).”

“A company’s values are the beliefs, traits, and behavioral norms that company personnel are expected to display in conducting the company’s business and pursuing its strategic vision and strategy.”

“Objectives are an organization’s performance targets—the results and outcomes management wants to achieve.  They function as yardsticks for measuring how well the organization is doing.”  (See list of financial and strategic objectives, pg. 19 for examples).

“A strategic plan lays out the company’s future direction, performance targets, and strategy.”
