Week 5: Portfolio Milestone: Purpose Statement (50 points of the final Portfolio grade)
Most of us are aware of the term â€œpurpose statementâ€ but are unsure of its real meaning within an organization. It is a statement describing the organizationâ€™s purpose, or the reason for its existence. The purpose of an organization reflects a desired position in the marketplace. It should accurately answer to the questions below. The purpose statement is the written summary of those answers.
- Who are we?
- What do we do?
- For whom do we do this?
- How do we know when we are getting it done?
The purpose statement is the written summary of those answers. The most effective purpose statements are short, concise, and direct. A good purpose statement is between 2â€“3 sentences.
Answer the four questions above and create a purpose statement for your HR department. Submit the answers to the four questions and the purpose statement to your instructor for review.
NOTE: At this stage, you will need to name your company and decide the service they provide or products they manufacture.
