    4. 4. Vision• Vision is a concept, that refers to one’s mental image of the future. Vision refers to the optimum future state of affairs that one can imagine for an individual or for an institution. (Wallace, Engel et al, 1997)• A vision is an outline of a desired state to be attained within a specific period, although it is a statement about an ideal, it is nevertheless expected to be achievable because it is based on sound understanding of prevailing conditions together with realistic assessment of the interventionist capabilities of the organization.’(Harlech-Jones, n. d.)
    5. 5. Example of Vision statement• Crescent Girls’ School Singapore• The vision of the Tablet PC program at the Crescent Girls’ School in Singapore is to connect teachers and students with a systematic and comprehensive use of technology combined with a rigorous and relevant curriculum and a career preparation component. Tablet PCs serve as the catalyst in the transition from traditional learning to a student-centered, problem solving, project-driven approach that will carry students well into the next century. Laptops enable learning to go beyond the school walls and provide access to worldwide resources.
    6. 6. Cont…• Beaufort County School District South Carolina, United States• In a voluntary program, students will use notebook computers in the classroom and at home to expand their learning opportunities beyond the traditional schoolhouse walls and beyond the traditional school day, to help them open new windows on the world. Believing that technology should serve all, a non-profit community foundation will provide subsidies to ensure that all students have equal access to computers, so that participation is based on the desire to learn, not the ability to pay
    7. 7. Mission• The mission statement of an organization is normally short, to the point, and contains the following elements: – Provides a concise statement of why the organization exists, and what it is to achieve; – States the purpose and identity of the organization; – Defines the institutions values and philosophy; and – Describes how the organization will serve those affected by its work.
    8. 8. Cont….• Unlike the vision statement, a statement focusing on the future, the business mission statement focuses on the current farm business. The business mission statement outlines “who we are, what we do, and for whom we do it.” It provides a concise summary of the farm business’s purpose. The mission statement deals with what the farm business is about and why.

    11. 11. How to develop mission statement• To create your mission statement, first identify your organizations "winning idea".• This is the idea or approach that will make your organization stand out from its competitors, and is the reason that customers will come to you and not your competitors (see tip below).• Next identify the key measures of your success. Make sure you choose the most important measures (and not too many of them!)• Combine your winning idea and success measures into a tangible and measurable goal.• Refine the words until you have a concise and precise statement of your mission, which expresses your ideas, measures and desired result.•
    12. 12. Vision vs. Mission• The vision is more broad and future oriented – the goal on the horizon• The mission is more focused – how you will get to the horizon• A mission statement tells what business you are in and what products and services you will offer. It is a clear statement of purpose. A mission statement may last for decades.• A vision transforms the organization. It provides a picture of what could be. It is a catalyst that can impel an organization to move toward that dream. As dreams come true or realities change, visions change. It is a goal of the highest order. •
    13. 13. Importance of vision and mission• An exciting, inspirational vision – Challenges and motivates workforce – Arouses strong sense of organizational purpose – Induces employee buy-in – Galvanizes people to live the organization
