Values - The guiding principles that state how the employees, beginning with management, intend to conduct their behavior and do business. These values will determine what kind of organization will develop and become the foundation of the organizations culture.
Vision - The articulation of the mission of the organization in such an appealing and intuitive picture that it conveys what the organization can be in the future and instills common purpose, self-esteem and a sense of membership within the organization. Traditionally, vision has come from the top management of the organization. Many leaders are beginning to see the value of creating the vision also from those who are closer to the work environment and the customer.
