Dear
Vision is the art of seeing things invisible(What to reach).Mission is your activities that make it visible.(How to reach)
Vision is like dream and mission is like action to reach that dream.
Vision is like having new eyes and mission is having new hands!
Vision is where you want to reach and mission is how you want to reach.

A mission statement concerns what an organization is all about.
A vision statement is what the organization wants to become.
A mission statement answers three key questions:
What do we do?
For whom do we do it?
What is the benefit?
A vision statement, on the other hand, describes how the future will look if the organization achieves its mission. A mission statement gives the overall purpose of an organization, while a vision statement describes a picture of the "preferred future." A mission statement explains what the organization does, for whom and the benefit. A vision statement, on the other hand, describes how the future will look if the organization achieves its mission.
Examples:
Centers for Disease Control Mission To promote health and quality of life by preventing and controlling disease, injury, and disability Vision Healthy People in a Healthy World

Mission Statement — - Purpose (What purpose the organisation has been created ) Vision Statement — — - it may be Long term goal
3rd September 2010
Vision
What organization want to become in future. - LONG TERM GOAL of the organisation
Mission
What is the purpose of the existence of the organization. - SHORT TERM TARGET/ACHIEVEMENT.
this can be measured by objectives/targets and planned by the startegic activities.

difference between vision and mission
Vision is a long term dream and mission represent the present profile of a company.mission to whom the comp. is targeting, what it is producing and how the compny is working? Both are top level planning strategy.
example- Mission of ITS college Gr.Noida is to provide six sigma quality education to all M.Tec, MBA and MCA students and vision is to become the no.1 college arround the world in place of forming top managers and software engineers arroun the world.
ex.2 Mission of TATA moters is to create chepest and best technological public cars, and vission is to been the no 1 brand arroun the world in the field of manfacturing best public cars.
thanks n regrds

Vision is something beyond apparent, some image that a person builds in his mind for future. Mission is the way to reach the vision. Regards Salil Sharma 099102 47001

A vision is a long term goal tat you want to achieve. A mission is the way or methods adopted to achieve tat particular vision. This is the simplest definition possible.

Simple With an example.... in cricket vision- Winning (depends... with grt margin scre or wkts) Mission - ur batting and bowling performance ( contains good SR,avg scre,best econ bowling.,etc)

The mission is a statement of who were are and what we do. The vision is a statement of who we want to be — and the strategic path we intend to take to get there

Let me share my understanding here.
Vision means what you would like be seen as, where you would like to be at.
Mission means how would you like to do that.
Next comes, goals and/or objectives, the strategy, followed by Planning, execution, monitoring, evaluation, review.
Hope this suffices.

Hi Kezee,
it's Just a coincidence that I came across this blog today and got interested in the topic here;
Well in simple terms I would say the difference between vision and mission is that, the vision is the bigger picture and future focused while the mission is Immediate focus on the present. It is the vision that defines where the organisation needs to be and the mission is the Road Map that will take you there, ofcourse not to forget the Values to follow the road map.

Just answer yourself to these questions and you will find the answer
1. Vision is something which the company wants to be in a period of time.
(This can change from time to time).
2. Mission. This is nothing but to reach the vision what is that the company need to do. It is noting but the company is in a mission to achive its vision and while going out on this mission what need to be done to achieve the vison.

Hi Kezee,
Mission: Short term goal, which is the way to reach the destination - Vision.

Vision: Long Term Goal, Is the Destination.
Eg:
Want to Become a Good Doctor in a Society is Vision ( long Term Goal - The Destination)

To the Reach the destination have to travel. To become a good doctor have to get good marks in Exams, Place and Practice in a hospital to Express the skills in the society ( short term Goal Which reaches Long Term Goal)

Hey...
The basic difference between the two is
Vision: it is the superset of mission, mostly the language is philosophical and it basically gives an idea as to where the company wants to be(sees itself) in the long run.eg. like in interviews they ask us where do u see urself in the next 15 yrs...it is something like that. but for a company long term doesn't mean 15 yrs,it is much more than that.
MISSION: it is more realistic as it describes the path (objectives, purpose etc) you will take to achieve your vision. it basically answers: what are you here for?(purpose) ; how will you accomplish your vision?

R/ friends, Vision is pro-longed goal achievement plan & Mission is the action plan to achieve targets with the consideration of current scenario and vision of organisation

Mission:- States the reason why your company exists. on the other hand Vision:- Is your strategy they way you want to achieve your goal.
4th September 2010 From Afghanistan
I agree with you. so we can say vision is a long term goal of organisation and mission is to short term targets/achievement to achieve that vision. hope i am right. regards, Neesu

juz i will add a point to the others perspective on vision and mission, usually vision statementsa re short declaration of what an organisation wants to be in future, and mission statements are the purpose excistence of the organisation

Vision is where you or your company would be after certain period of time. And Mission is what will you or your company will do to approach your Vision.
4th September 2010 From India, Navsari
If we cannot even get clarity and differentiate between Vision and Mission then we will find difficulty to engage people on the strategic direction of the business. In worse cases, I have seen many people/companies got the Vision and Mission all twisted in reverse.



A Mission tells the reason why the company/entity exist - purpose or reason for being.

A Vision explains what the organization wants to become in some future.



The best way to explain this is always to give examples. Lets' take dariyahussine example - Centers for Disease Control. I wholly agree with the Mission, but not with the Vision.



We acknowledge a vision as a long term goal, aspiration or destiny that we want to achieve in some future. But, how come we just treat it as some "infinite" wishful thought devoid of substance in driving towards it's achievement. The biggest flaw in vision statements is when you do not give it a timeframe - dateline!



Healthy people in a healthy world - sounds so superflous, impractical and overgeneralised. How would one reword/rephrase it to better reflect the future state it wants to see.



I would say, "to become the first disease control agency in the world to achieve 100% control of Malaria by 2015" (Let's assume, currently Malaria happens to be the biggest killer disease)



Now, tell me what goes in your mind, as an Employee!. We often forget to put our ideas and decisions through this test process. The Vision is for everyone to lock and allign their focus, commitment, tasks to that overaching "ultimate" goal written under Vision. This is what gives direction, meaning, motivation, morale and substance to the job, tasks, activities that people come to work for. The entire workforce can then be geared to rally behind this single big agenda, in a selfless state of engagement.



If we can't get the Vision "right", how can we expect our people to be on the same page in the execution phase. Year in and year out, we may seem to be making significant progress in accordance with our stated Mission, but how do you measure the "effectiveness" of your progress in that journey, if you have not set some check points.



A Vision is a goal - hence should follow the tenets of SMART principles and it must have a timeline. Once you have acheived it, then set another compelling Vision to stretch the capability and potential of people. Vision is all about people - giving people hope, direction and purpose to stay challenged. We should avoid making it a 'meaningless" statement to satisfy having something on the wall.



Now, how complicated can that be.



Hope the above helps.
