This strategy framework is a structured method for defining how a project or initiative supports key stakeholders' objectives. The strategy framework must be based on the organization's mission, vision, and goals to ensure success. The mission statement explains the organization's purpose or why it exists. The vision statement shows what the organization aspires to be; it describes its "future state." Goals state what must be accomplished by when, but they do not specify how those objectives will be met. This is when a strategic framework comes into the picture. The strategic framework explains how a project or initiative will assist the organization in achieving its mission, vision, and goals.
