As anyone who’s been on a committee to draft one knows, coming up with a “mission statement” can be an arduous process. They tell us it’s an important thing to do for your organization, but it often feels like “they” haven’t spent time arguing whether a 20-word sentence is too long or too short, or whether “synthesize” sounds too “jargon-y”.
Which is why I was pleasantly surprised to find that coming up with Soft Crow’s mission statement, as seen at the top of this post, was actually pretty easy. We went through a few drafts of course, but in the end what we do (and why we do it) was straightforward.
Still, it’s only a sentence. And a sentence can’t tell you everything you need to know about the values and principles and processes of a group of people who have worked on many projects over many years. Which is why I’m writing this blog post; in fact, it’s why we’ve got the whole blog.
Our goal for the Soft Crow blog is to bring you some of that extra information about our company: what we do, what we’ve learned, what we value. Honestly, I don’t quite know what that will look like yet. But here’s hoping it’s fun and interesting… at least more fun and interesting than a mission statement committee.
