A mission statement sets out the business vision and values that enables employees, managers, customers and even suppliers to understand the underlying basis for the actions of the business
Tesco’s aims and objectives;
Here are some ideas why Tesco set aims and objectives.
expansion of market share
relationship with other businesses
Survival- Survival is continuing to be in business, even cope in hard times like when the recession takes place. All businesses need to survive first, in order to make profits.
Growth means to expand the business. Tesco becomes bigger. ‘Bigger’ may mean several things such as a larger share, a greater amount of capital employed, more employees and a greater turnover and profits.
Profit is probably the most common and the most important objective. Tesco cannot survive for long unless it covers all of its costs.
In order for Tesco to achieve these aims their objectives should be SMART (specific measurable, relevant and time) Aims and objectives there is no meaning to business, it’s the aims and objectives that give meaning to subsequent activates of planning, directing, staffing, organising and controlling.
Tesco has long-term goals which are used by businesses to provide a direction setting for objectives. This is normally expressed within the mission statement of a business in which this allows a number of objectives to be set.
Tesco’s objectives are to increase sales, increase market share, to maximise sales, to grow and maintain the number one retail company in the UK, and Tesco wants to do better than their competitors and remain the market leader. Tesco’s objectives are very straight forward, and straight to the point, in this case you can tell Tesco is all about business, and keeping their profits high.
Objectives can change over time. For example if Tesco have got a product they are going to sell, and there competitors are selling it cheaper, they would have to change their objectives because there main focus would be to make enough and survive as a business.
