MGT SLP 1 MGT 499 Strategic Management
The Organizations Purpose, Mission, Vision, Values, and Goals
In this Module, you will be considered a Strategic Management subject matter expert. You will blog about important aspects of the Strategic Management process, using articles about current events pulled from reputable sources (e.g., trade journals, newspapers, or magazines such as The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Business Week, or Forbes) to support your key arguments.
For the Module 1 SLP, find a recent article that provides an example of an organization that appears to be successful (or that has been unsuccessful) in fulfilling its Mission, Vision, Values, or goals.
Hint: Visit either ProQuest or EBSCO-Business Source Complete in the library. Type “Mission Statements,” “Vision Statements,” “Values Statements,” or “Goals” in the boxes provided. Then, click on “Subject” in the pull-down menu bar next to each. Make sure to click on “Trade Journals,” “Newspapers,” and/or “Magazines.” You will find plenty of sources from which to choose. Your main article(s) for your blog entry must be no older than 12 months. You may, of course, use older sources to support your discussion and analysis; however, the current event article serving as the main focus of your paper must be no more than 12 months old.
Remember that you are playing the role of a business expert who is blogging in the context of Strategic Management. The key is to convey to the public the importance of the Mission, Vision, and/or Values statements or organizational goals in a Strategic Management context. You will need to provide examples of an organization that has done particularly well (or one that has done poorly) in fulfilling its stated Mission, Vision, Values statements, or its goals.
