Build a Strategic Framework: Mission Statement, Vision, and Values


What is a Strategic Framework?

A strategic framework is a plan that guides an organisation’s actions and decisions. The framework outlines the organisations goals and objectives, as well as how it will achieve them. It also identifies the resources necessary for success and the risks that need to be considered. A strategic framework can help an organisation stay focused on its long-term priorities, while still being flexible enough to respond to changes in the environment.

When developing a strategic framework for your business, it’s important to create a clear mission statement, vision, and values. These will provide the foundation for all your strategic planning and decision making. Here are some tips for creating each of these components:

Mission Statement: What is it and how to write one?

A mission statement is a declaration of the purpose of a company or organisation. It’s a way to communicate your company’s goals and values to employees, customers, and the public. A well-written mission statement can help you make decisions that are in line with your company’s goals, and it can also be used to attract investors and partners.

There are a few things to keep in mind when writing a mission statement. First, it should be brief and easy to understand. Second, it should be specific enough to provide a clear picture of what your company is trying to achieve, but not so specific that it becomes difficult to change as your business grows and evolves. Finally, it should reflect your company’s core values and beliefs.

Vision: What is it and how to write one?

A vision statement for a business is a declaration of the company’s purpose, intended to inspire and guide its employees. It should be short, memorable, and clear enough that anyone in the company can recite it.

The best way to write a vision statement is to start by imagining what you want your company to become in the future. What are your long-term goals? What impact do you want your company to have on its industry or the world? Once you have a clear idea of what you want your business to become, you can begin drafting a vision statement that reflects those goals.

Values: What are they and how to write them?

When starting a business, it is important to have a clear set of values to guide your decisions. These values can be anything from the importance of customer service to the need for innovation. They should be specific and measurable so that you can track how well you are living up to them.

Once you have your values, you need to write them down and share them with your employees. This will help create a culture of accountability and will make it easier to make decisions in difficult situations. You should also revisit your values on a regular basis and make changes as needed.

Putting it all together: How to build a Strategic Framework

Most organisations have strategic plans, but few have a well-defined strategic framework. A strategic framework is a guide for making decisions and taking actions that support the organisation’s vision and mission. It includes the key components of strategy: purpose, values, goals, strategies, and measures. A well-defined strategic framework will help an organisation make better decisions, stay on track, and achieve its goals.

Final thoughts

Every organisation needs to have a strategic framework in order to achieve its goals. All three components of a strategic framework are important, but the most critical is the mission statement. It lays out the purpose of an organisation and provides a guide for decision-making. It should be clear and concise, and it should inspire employees to work towards common goals.
