Tests For

Tests Against


Enterprise Goal can be used to represent the following:


A Vision (Statement) outlines what the organization wants to be. It concentrates on the future. It is a source of inspiration. It provides clear decision-making criteria.



A Mission Statement tells you the fundamental purpose of the organization. It concentrates on the present. It defines the customer and the critical processes. It informs you of the desired level of performance. In TRAK therefore if an Enterprise is defined as having both the start and finish dates as [Today] and a Vision is attached this is therefore the equivalent to a Mission Statement.
