The Mystery of Mission Statements

26 May

Mission statements. It’s a set of standards(?) made up at the start of a company or endeavor. I have heard some companies require employees to memorize and know the mission statement. Does this affect daily work output or increase the quality of a product or service? Just curious. I haven’t done any research on it. Who made the first mission statement? (I tried googling it without success.) It was a little difficult to dig this one up, because The Press began nearly 60 years go. I love that there is a tiny glimpse of hope for small newspapers. Hyper-local coverage is what differentiates them from all other news sources.

Here is a organizational chart outlining The Riverdale Press. It was required for my internship class. This is my attempt to apply creativity to the assignment. New goal: apply creativity to everything! School work, job work, life, callings, chores, whatever you can think of. (And now I’m off to find inspiration!)

    Jordan that was very selfish of you to be so creative and awesome when I just turned in a Microsoft Word document with bullet points… You are just too talented!
