As an analyst or data scientist, its important to have a holistic view of the org that you support. This is important because it will help you in metrics design, project prioritization among other things!
Also, there’s a lot written on what is vision, mission & strategy and the difference between each of these. So this post is not a recap of that but I wanted to share an easy way to remember them:
Just map the three things as follows:
Vision -> What?
Mission -> Why?
Strategy -> How?
If you are able to answer:
- What does your org do?
Why do they do that?
How do they do that?
Then you just came up with Vision, mission & strategy.
Hope that helps!
