A vision framework from the author of Good to Great

Jim Collins and Jerry Porras provide a framework for deep diving into your organization's vision. For them vision is comprised of three elements:

  • Core Values
  • Core Purpose
  • BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal)

The term "core purpose" is similar to ResultMaps concept of "mission."

"Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG)" serves the same purpose that ResultMaps tracks in "vision statements". 

The Collins/Porras Vision Framework organizes time into three segments with a total of 12 breakout sessions as shown below.

  1. Core Ideology (6 breakout sessions)
  2. Envisioned Future (6 breakout sessions)
  3. The Mars Group
