Notes
  • Background Despite the omnipresence of mission statements, studies indicate that creating an effective mission statement is extremely difficult. Purposes Given the increasing pressure on health care administrators to develop an effective mission statement, this article sought to devise a state of the art of empirical mission statement research in order to develop a set of empirical based recommendations on how to successfully develop a mission statement within a health care organization. Methodology/​Approach The applied review strategy is based upon the systematic literature review process for management research initialized by Tranfield, Denyer and Smart (2003). In total, 7 electronic databases were systematically scanned in order to identify all empirical articles addressing the concept of mission statements within a health care related setting. Findings The systematic literature review identified 21 suitable articles. Descriptive and thematic analysis of the identified articles resulted in a mission statement development template and recommendations for future research. Practice Implications The conducted literature analysis allowed us to distill 10 empirically grounded recommendations on how to successfully develop, formulate and implement a mission statement within a health care organization.
