On the basis of the research, generically explain the difference between mission and vision statements. Provide two examples (of mission and vision statements) of two actual companies and compare and contrast the statements of the two companies.

You are an internal consultant working for a large organization. Top management believes all managers should understand how and why they operate the business in the manner they do. You have been asked to create a document to be used in an internal training program for newly appointed or newly hired managers. The company develops its strategic/business plans, objectives, and goals on the basis of competitor strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis. The training program will focus on this process.
