The vision is the starting point of strategic framework. Where you want to be in future.
That makes a difference in society. They have a vision that
how society could be or should be in future
This vision is not they can achieve on their own. It is
something that guides in their work and which they believe, can be achieved if enough organizations share the vision and works towards it.
Example of vision…..
We strive to contribute to a society where every citizen has equal access to quality health care and is able to live in an environment which supports quality health for all.
Purpose of existence of your organization.
The mission contains statements how you are going
to achieve the vision statement.
A mission statement have four components: What the organization or project is? What the organization or project aims to do or achieve? Who the work is aimed at( the target group), How it does it work(what methods it uses)
A mission statement is a statement of the organization’s reason for being, its purpose – what it wants to accomplish in the larger environment. (Kotler p.49).
Goals are general directions, that are not specific
enough to be measured.
Think of the word "go." It has no end.
A good example is the signature line of the Star Trek television series: “Go where no one in has gone before." You can't measure it, and you probably will never know if the goals were accomplished, because once humans have gone somewhere, we've been there, and there are still other places to go since the universe is infinite and has no end.
Objectives, on the other hand, are specific and
Think of the word "object." You can touch it, it's
there, it's actual, it's finite.
A crystal-clear objective would read something like
this: "Our objective is to deliver X results by Y date at a cost of Z dollars." .
Think of the goals as the treasure at the top of a stairway, and the objectives as the stairs.

Performance objectives. Cost objectives. Control objectives. Complexity objectives.
