The Vision Scorecard has two parts, a crystal‐clear vision statement that describes what success looks like in 3, 5 or 10 years, and a mechanism for measuring progress toward that desired state. The vision statement itself, if developed properly, is one of the most important tools for mobilizing and influencing a team or organization, but is can be just another time-consuming exercise unless the group has some accountability and that means a way of measuring progress.
The Vision Statement itself is a detailed description of the future, including what the new situation will look like, how people will be working, what they will be doing, and what results they will be achieving. To create a shared vision, the team should work as individuals, then as a group.
