    Coca Cola Company has executed the most successful beverage strategy of the past 50
    years. Its strategic communications, however, fall short of the success of its underlying strategy.
    Coca Cola advertises a formal mission statement that does little to communicate its strategy to its
    stakeholders, and should therefore reshape a more specific formal mission statement. Its vision
    statement is hidden deep within its website, and also falls short of guiding the company's future.
    While the vision statement more closely aligns with the company strategy, it should also be
    reshaped in order to provide a more specific tract for future growth and goals.


    Coca Cola Company is the most successful beverage enterprise in the United Statesâ?"it is
    the largest (as measured by customer volume), among the oldest (125 years in business), and
    most profitable (with 59 consecutive years of dividend growth), (Coca Cola, 2011). Coca Cola
    operates under a winning strategyâ?" and when a strategy is working, it should be largely left
    alone. All that remains is synchronizing all the elements of an organization in order to execute
    such a strategy with efficiency. The most fundamental purpose of a strategy, after all, is to
    "inform each of the many thousands of things that get done in an organization every day, and to

    Cola can refine their operational execution through the use of more relevant and effective
    mission and vision statements.


    The mission of Coca Cola Company is, "To refresh the world...To inspire moments of
    optimism and happiness...To create value and make a difference, (Coca Cola, nd). In some
    respects, this makes for an effective mission statement. For example, it is universally
    understandable to stakeholders inside- and outside the organization, (Zahorsky, 2011). The
    mission places a focus on customer experienceâ?"clearly defining the expectations of the product.
    It also references investors, with clear focus on creating value. There is, however, some room for


    Taken out of context, Coca Cola's mission statement could apply to any company, in any
    industry. There is a vague reference to "refreshment," but the focus of the first statement is on
    globalization of the market, not on the product. The mission of an organization should address
    the fundamental purpose for existence, (Adams, nd). Coca Cola's statement, taken as a whole,
    induces distractionâ?""moments of optimism and ...
