Mission, vision, and values statements. Use the definitions below.

Do some internets research on 2 well known companies. USING MY syllabus definition of a good mission statement, critique the 2 different real company mission statements you have found.

b. A vision statement should be a short slogan-type saying, reflecting the aspirations of the company, like "At Ford, Quality is Job #1" or at Apple, "A computer on every desk".

c. A value statement should be a list of short bullets of the firms values, such as 'we will always be a good community citizen'.
