Conduct an Internet search to find the publicly posted mission statements of two organizations you admire. This may take some effort and trial and error because some organizations do not have an explicit mission statement or at least do not post it online. Also, as was previously mentioned, some organizations use other terms such as vision or simple purpose to communicate this message. Make your own assessment of whether what an organization states, no matter what they call it, fits the definitions of a mission statement as discussed this week. Because finding a particular firm’s mission statement might be challenging, be sure to start with a list of at least 5 to 10 firms you admire to find the two you need for this assignment.
Prepare a written report that contains the following in this specific order:
Clearly introduce the purpose of your report, and then explain how you will structure ideas throughout your paper.
Discuss the meaning of the term mission statement using this week’s resources. Based on what the mission statements communicate to you, explore their effectiveness in supporting diverse workforces working in different environments.
Be sure to document the mission statement of each selected organization. Investigate whether each mission statement is effective in allowing the organization to adapt and evolve in today’s diverse and ever-changing society and business environment. If society or their business environments change, will their mission statement help or hinder their ability to adapt to those changes? What would you do as a manager leading a team of employees in that organization? Would the statement be effective in helping you make decisions? Why or why not? What changes might you suggest the firms make to their mission statements?
Provide a conclusion to your paper with brief concluding remarks about the results of your analysis.
Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.
