Purpose and outcomes: • Identification of formal and informal mandates; • Interpretation of what is required as a result of the mandates; • Clarification of what is forbidden by the mandates; • Clarification of what is not ruled out by the mandates. Benefits: • Increases likelihood that mandates will be met; • Enhances possibility of developing a mission not limited to mandates. Guidelines: • Compile a complete list of formal and informal mandates; • Review mandates to clarify what is required, forbidden, and allowed; • Remind organization regularly of mandates; • Review mandates regularly to discuss relevance. Mission clarifies organizational purpose, or why it should be doing what it IS doing. Vision clarifies what it should like in the future and how it should behave as it fulfills its mission.
