What is a Company Mission? The fundamental purpose that sets a firm apart from other firms of its type and identifies the scope of its operations in product and market terms
Characteristics of a Mission Statement Embodies the business philosophy of the firm’s strategic decision makers Implies image firm seeks to project Reflects firm’s self-concept Indicates  firm’s principal product or service areas primary customer needs the firm will attempt to satisfy
Questions Addressed By a Mission Statement Why is this firm in business? What are our economic goals? What is our operating philosophy in terms of quality, company image, and self-concept? What are our core competencies and competitive advantages? What customers do and can we serve? How do we view our responsibilities to stockholders, employees, communities, environment, social issues, and competitors?
Components of a Mission Statement Specifies basic type of product or service to be offered Identifies primary market or customer groups to be served Specifies the technology to be used in production or delivery Reflects the firm’s fundamental concern for survival through growth and profitability Reflects the firm’s managerial philosophy Identifies the public image the firm seeks Specifies the self-concept those affiliated with the firm should have of it
Ex 2-2:  Practical Examples of Mission Statement Components Customer-market To anticipate and meet market needs of farmers, ranchers, and rural communities within North America (CENEX) Product-service AMAX’s principal products are molybdenum, coal, iron ore, copper, lead, zinc, petroleum and natural gas,. potash phosphates, nickel, tungsten, silver, gold, and magnesium
Ex 2-2 (contd.) Geographic domain We are dedicated to total success of Corning Glass Works as a worldwide competitor Technology The common technology in these areas relates to discrete particle coatings (NASHUA) Concern for Survival In this respect, the company will conduct its operations  prudently, and will provide the profits and growth which will assure Hoover’s ultimate success (Hoover Universal)
Ex 2-2 (contd.) Philosophy Self-concept Concern for Public Image We are committed to improve health care throughout the world (Baxter Travenol) Hoover Universal is a diversified, multi-industry corporation with strong manufacturing capabilities, entrepreneurial policies, and individual business unit autonomy   We are responsible to the communities in which we live and  work and to the world community as well ( Johnson & Johnson )
Newest Trends in Mission Components Sensitivity to customer wants “ The customer is our top priority!” Emphasis on extensive product safety programs Concern for quality “ Quality is job one!” Emphasis on quality in manufacturing New philosophy – quality is the norm
Newest Trends in Mission Components  Statements of company vision Developed to express the aspirations of the executive leadership Presents the firm’s strategic intent “A computer on every desk, and in every home, running on Microsoft software”
Deming’s 14 Steps to Quality Create constancy of purpose Adopt the new philosophy Cease dependence on mass inspection to achieve quality End the practice of awarding business on price tag alone Improve constantly the system of production and service Institute training on the job Institute leadership Drive out fear Break down barriers between departments Eliminate slogans, exhortations, and numerical targets Eliminate quotas and management by objectives Remove barriers that rob workers, etc. of their right to pride of workmanship Institute a vigorous program of education/self-improvement Everyone works to accomplish goals
Responsibilities of the Board of Directors To establish and update the company mission To elect the company’s top officers, the foremost of whom is the CEO To establish the compensation levels of the top officers, including their salaries and bonuses To determine the amount and timing of the dividends paid to stockholders
Responsibilities of the Board of Directors To set broad company policy on such matters as labor-management relations, product or service lines of business, and employee benefit packages To set company objectives and to authorize managers to implement the long-term strategies that the top officers and the board have found agreeable To mandate company compliance with legal and ethical dictates
Ex. 2-10: Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (Major Elements) Corporate responsibility Increased disclosure Audit committees New crimes and increased criminal penalties New civil cause of action and increased enforcement powers Auditor independence
Concepts of Agency Theory Involves separation of owners (principals) and managers (agents) of a firm Potential exists for owners’ wishes to be ignored Involves delegation of decision-making authority by owners to managers Potential agency costs can include Agency problems Actions taken to minimize agency problems
How Can Agency Problems Occur? Moral hazard problem Owners have access to limited information Owners cannot monitor every executive decision Executives often free to pursue own interests Adverse selection Stockholders have limited ability to determine competencies of executives at time of hire Problems of overlapping priorities between owners and executives likely to occur
Potential Agency Relationship Problems Executives pursue growth in company size rather than in earnings Executives attempt to diversify their corporate risk Executives avoid risk Managers act to optimize their personal payoffs Executives act to protect their status
Solutions to the Agency Problem Define agent’s responsibilities in a contract, including elements like bonuses to align executives’ and owners’ interests Pay executives a premium for their services Structure a backloaded compensation plan for executives Create teams of executives across different organizational units to focus on overall organizational performance
Stakeholder Approach to Social Responsibility Incorporating stakeholders’ interests in the mission statement involves Identification   of the stakeholders Understanding  the stakeholders’ specific claims vis-à-vis the firm Reconciliation  of these claims and assignment of priorities to them Coordination  of the claims with other elements of the company mission
Ex. 2-12: Inputs to Development of Mission Statement Inside Stakeholders Executive officers Board of directors Stockholders Employees Outside Stakeholders Customers Suppliers Creditors Governments Unions Competitors General public Company Mission
Social Responsibility View of Outsiders View of Insiders Insiders’ claims need to be subordinated to the greater good of the society; that is, to the greater good of outsiders The competing claims of outsiders should be balanced against one another in a way that protects the company mission
Strategies to Address Social Responsibility The 4 E’s Make it easy for consumer to be green Empower consumers with solutions Enlist the support of the consumer Establish credibility with all publics
A Continuum of Social Responsibilities Economic responsibilities Legal responsibilities Ethical responsibilities Discretionary responsibilities
Why Should Managers Be Concerned About Social Responsibility? A company’s right to exist depends on its responsiveness to the external environment Government threatens  increased regulation if businesses do not meet changing social standards A responsive corporate social policy may enhance a firm’s long-term viability
The Debate: Arguments Against CSR A business bears a responsibility only for the financial well-being of its stockholders  Milton Friedman Corporate actions motivated by anything other than shareholder wealth maximization threatens that well-being.
The Debate: Arguments for CSR Business does not function in a vacuum Exists to serve Depends on its environment Has responsibility to ensure well-being of environment Stockholders’ interests may transcend the financial Best way for a company to maximize shareholder wealth Act in a socially responsible manner
Cost-Benefit Analysis of CSR Analysis of CSR has not been successful because … Some CSR activities incur no dollar costs Socially responsible behavior does  not come at a prohibitive cost Socially responsible practices may create savings, thus increasing profits
CSR Today Three broad trends are driving businesses to adopt CSR frameworks The resurgence of environmentalism Increasing buyer power Globalization of business
CSR’s Effect on the Mission Statement In developing mission statements, managers must identify all stakeholder groups and weigh their relative rights and abilities to affect the firm’s success Some companies are proactive in their approach to CSR, making it an integral part of their raison d’ ê tre (e.g., Ben and Jerry’s ice cream) Others are reactive, adopting socially responsible behavior only when they must (e.g., Exxon after the  Valdez  incident)
Social Audit A social audit attempts to measure a company’s actual social performance against the social objectives it has set for itself
Uses of a Social Audit Uses include … Monitoring and evaluating  firm social performance Scanning external  environment Determining firm  vulnerabilities Institutionalizing CSR within firm
Management Ethics Ethics  refers to the moral principles that govern the actions of an individual or a group. Values of one individual, group or society may be at odds with the values of another individual, group, or society. Ethical standards  reflect not a universally accepted code, but rather the end product of a process of defining and clarifying the nature and content of human interaction.
Approaches to Questions of Ethics Managers who adopt the  utilitarian approach  judge the effects of a particular action on the people directly involved, in terms of what provides the greatest good for the greatest number of people. Managers who subscribe to the  moral rights approach  judge whether decisions and actions are in keeping with the maintenance of fundamental individual and group rights and privileges. Managers who take the  social justice approach  judge how consistent actions are with equity, fairness, and impartiality in the distribution of rewards and costs among individuals and groups.

Managers who take the social justice approach judge how consistent actions are with equity, fairness, and impartiality in the distribution of rewards and costs among individuals and groups.
