Mission Statements

A well-written mission statement has the following attributes:

  • It expresses its point succinctly and immediately.

  • It avoids unnecessary statements or details and is well-defined.

  • It avoids phrases or sentences that explicitly describe specific tasks.

  • It makes sense to you (the database developer) and to those for whom you are designing the database.
