Corporate Mission Statements – Interesting pattern

March 15, 2010 at 5:50 pm | Posted in Organizational culture | 2 Comments

Last week, I read in the Times of India corporate mission statements of some well known companies, which I am quoting below.
Google: Organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.
Wipro: Build integrity, simplicity and intensity to win.
TATA: Ensure what comes from people goes back to them many times over
Infosys: Strive for fairness, honesty, and courtesy to all.
Microsoft: help people and businesses throughout the world realize their full potential.
Bloom energy: To make clean, reliable energy affordable for everyone in the world.

One interesting pattern I noticed was that all the companies from India in this list had missions based on values whereas the US companies focused on what they would do for their customers and society at large. Was it just a coincidence or it has to do something with the respective cultures?

  1. Its really interesting an yes I think its because of the culture. As US is already a developed country so they just want to give the society the best and while Indian are still developing we have to showcase our honesty and values to get new clients 😀

  2. I think it is not culture; it is understanding of human psychology. People are interested in themselves; all they think about what they want so businesses guess what their customers want. I do not think if we reverse USA and India motto; their purpose will end.
