WRITING ABOUT YOUR WORK

CREATING YOUR VISION STATEMENT

A clear vision statement you to focus and and make key business decisions for your project.
To create one, ask yourself the following:

1. Who are you?
In one word define who you are.
Do this until you have at least twenty individual words.
This helps you develop the vocabulary with which you can begin to articulate your vision.

2. What is your mission?
Using the words that you generated (as many as you can, but not necessarily all), write what you intend to achieve until you have six unique statements that represent your project goals. Read them out loud. Read them to friends. Pick the hardest-hitting message and fine-tune it until it says exactly what your project represents.

3. How do you ..?
In three-word statements, explain why your project is unique. What does it do, what actions does it take? Create at least fifteen statements that explain how you intend to achieve your mission. From these, create three to five sentences that deliver your vision statement.

4. What is your Mandate?
Using the above statements create three to five sentences that explain how you / your project achieves it’s mission. Each statement should speak to what is unique about your project.
