The most successful companies are those that remain true to its core values throughout the years and create a company where employees and customers feel proud.
This is where mission statements and corporate visions of companies come into play.

Therefore, vision statements should be reviewed whenever necessary to reflect the corporate culture constantly changing as different objectives are achieved.
