Bringing clarity and direction to your organization’s mission is foundational to strategic planning.

DEFINING MISSION

  • What are we trying to achieve and how do we plan to achieve it?
  • “We exist to…”

ORGANIZATIONAL VALUES

  • What are our fundamental beliefs that guide our way as we pursue our vision and mission?
  • As an example, you may choose ‘child-centered’ as a value. You would support that value with a statement, “We place the needs, rights, and well-being of children at the heart of our decision-making and actions, recognizing their unique potential and vulnerability.”
