Visions are often written in future terms of what the organization will look like. Vision statements also articulate the organization’s
values and principles.
As example if your business included providing services and products to your customers that include safety, you might say;
“Our Vision is zero incidents through living Safety as a Core Value, a Condition of Employment and a Team Effort, in which We have Effectively Managed Risks, Worked Safely in providing our internal and external customers with a Competitive Business Advantage.”
Could this vision could be used as a daily guide in decision making?
Some decisions are “no brainer’s”, easily made and never wrong. Other decisions cross several boundaries and require quite a lot of thought.
It is in the latter types of decision making where using your vision statement as a guide, would provide employees the opportunity to stay in tune with the interests of the company, fellow team members, and your external customers.
