A project mission, vision, goals, and objectives are related yet distinct elements of a project plan. A mission statement defines the purpose of the project as it relates to overall organizational values and/or goals. It should be concise, specific and measurable. Generally, a mission statement does not change over time but may be revisited for refinement or contextualization after major changes in the project’s scope or direction (Brown & Hyerle 2014). A vision statement provides an inspirational image of the future which can serve as a guidepost for achieving the desired outcome of the project (Laricchiuta 2017). Goals provide tangible targets that need to be met during completion of the tasks necessary to achieve success while objectives are concrete steps that must be taken in order to reach those goals (Gaddis 2020).
