In general, firms have two mission statements. One is an internal guide for employees to understand what the company does, how it is done, and who it is done for. This internal mission statement keeps the employees focused on the realistic goals of the firm. The other mission statement is broadcast externally. An outline for customers, investors, and business partners, the external mission statement lists who the firm is, what it does, how it does what it does, and how it does what it does better than anyone else.

The second section of the mission statement, entitled vision, defines the company and the competition much better than the first. And it defines exactly the product that the company makes. This section lists Coca-Cola’s goals to encourage a happy workforce, to be responsible environmentally, to carry refreshing beverages, to be a good business partner, all while completing its responsibilities to its shareholders. 

The last section of the mission statement, named “values,” gives the reader an idea of the qualities that Coca-Cola expects of its employees: leadership, passion,...
