Part One  First 2 pages should discuss the following:

  • What are the organization’s values as presented in a values statement (or otherwise communicated)?

◦Was the creation of the shared values statement done by a select group of individuals or all individuals?

◦How accurate are the values (i.e., single words representing a value or specific actions that reflected a value?)

  • What is the organization’s vision statement?

◦How was the vision statement created?

◦How inspiring is the vision statement?

  • What is the organization’s mission statement?

◦How does the mission statement clarify the purpose of the organization?

◦How does the mission statement align with the vision statement? With the values statement?

If the organization fails to have any of these statements, explore the organizational challenges that resulted in the lack of these foundation elements.

The final paragraph (three or four sentences) of your first post should summarize the one or two key points that you are making in your initial response.

Part Two pages 3-8 should discuss the following:

  • Assess the effectiveness of the organization’s values statement:

◦What is the values statement or what are the organizational values?

◦How was the values statement created? Who participated?

◦How accurate is the values statement when compared to actual behaviors in the organization?

◦What recommendations would you make to improve the values statement and to enhance how it is used in organizational behaviors and decision making?

◦If your organization does not have a values statement, assess key themes from organizational practices that might reflect actual values being used (even if not written) and defend recommendations for how the organization could develop a values statement and enhance organizational behaviors.

  • Analyze the effectiveness of the vision statement.

◦Do organizational members know what the vision is? Based on what evidence?
