An easy way to remember: Vision, Mission & Strategy


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:

  1. What does your org do?

  2. Why do they do that?

  3. How do they do that?

Then you just came up with Vision, mission & strategy.

Hope that helps!
