How to Write a Mission Statement

1) Answer: Why does your organization exist? Think hard on that question. How do you serve your community, society, and the greater good? Think beyond just providing a product or service and consider how the organization impacts, evolves, or changes the world we live in.

2) Respond: Write your answer down on a piece of paper and keep honing it until you can state it in 60 characters or less. This is about 10 words. Seem impossible? Just focus on the most critical element of your answer and strip away everything else. Enter it in the box in 60 characters or less.

3) Review: After all of your team members have submitted their responses, your AchieveIt administrator will post the results. Review the various responses and then collaborate with your team to decide on your organization's revised or new mission statement.
