Strategic Intent and Strategic Mission

Strategic intent is internally focused. It is concerned with identifying the resources, capabilities, and core competencies on which a firm can base its strategic actions. Strategic intent reflects what a firm is capable of doing as a result of its core competencies and the unique ways they can be used to exploit a competitive advantage.

 Strategic mission is a statement of a firms’s unique purpose and the scope of its operations in product and market terms. Strategic mission flows from strategic intent. It is externally focused. A strategic mission provides general descriptions of the products a firm intends to produce and the markets it will serve using its internally based core competencies.

 An effective strategic mission establishes a firm’s individuality and is exciting, inspiring, and relevant to all stakeholders. Together, strategic intent and strategic mission yield the insights required to formulate and implement the firm’s strategies.
