Lenny_da_Hog: Mission statements are actually important for policy writing -- The Preamble to the Constitution is a mission statement. It tells you everything you're trying to accomplish by establishing an administration or project plan.
enthralledgeishagirl: All we need is a mission statement and we will be able to begin our journey
muck1969: there are so many useless office-speak word-salad lines to hate, but the phrase "with that said" pisses me off the most. there are better words or phrases that could have been used to describe if the previous statement is in support of, or in contrast to, the subsequent statement. using "synergy" in place of "teamwork" is a close second. the snark in this thread is inspiring.
CaitoStreet: Lenny_da_Hog: enthralledgeishagirl: All we need is a mission statement and we will be able to begin our journeyThose are the ones that piss me off the most, as someone who did a lot of industrial policy writing and training.Mission statements are actually important for policy writing -- The Preamble to the Constitution is a mission statement.

They diminish the importance by applying it to everything, and then when you try to train someone using the phrase "mission statement," they think they're being patronized and roll their eyes at you.I could not agree more. The only thing I hate more then mission statements being trivialized are poorly written mission and vision statements.
