“I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed --- “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal” ”.

Top managers or leaders state a Vision in order to create teamwork to move in a required direction. A Vision can be analyzed and decomposed into a set of Requirements. In the speeches and writings of senior management, the Vision might be the only defined Component, which is quoted. However, the organization and management would be wise to articulate and clarify their understanding of, and commitment to, the Vision by decomposing it into a hierarchical set of specific objectives, including specific Goals for the Elementary objectives. They should map the path to the Vision with both short term and long term numeric targets. They can then begin an Evolutionary Process of moving towards the specified Vision.

A Vision statement is the reference point for developing more-detailed specifications, such as Product line performance specifications, that support the achievement of the Vision. A Vision statement presumes that at least an Assumption is made about the Mission, for example that “we are in the mobile phone business,” or “we make aircraft”.
