MISSION, VISION, GOALS, OBJECTIVES.
Project mission, Project vision, project goals, project objectives, those terms seem to cause a lot of confusion as many people perceive them as being more or less the same. I asked couple of friends to tell me the difference between those terms and they indeed struggled as it appeared that all of them were referring to defining the problem the project was trying to solve. Getting back to the definition of what a project is i.e. an individual or collaborative enterprise that is carefully planned and designed to achieve a particular aim, we see that undertaking a project is an endeavour that attempts to close a gap between where you are and where you want to be. The terms used to define that destination are “mission,” “vision,” “goals,” and “objectives.”
