The mission statements of most companies say much more about the enterprise’s present business scope and purpose, “who we are, what we do, and why we are here.” A company’s mission defines the segment of customers the company seeks to satisfy, the market segment it seeks to serve, and the resources deployed to achieve the purpose (Thompson et al., 2005). If a company’s mission is to have any managerial value, or reveal anything useful about its business, it must direct attention to the particular market segment in which it operates; the buyer needs it seeks to satisfy, the customer groups, the market segment it is trying to serve and the types of resources it is deploying to please this group of customers.

For example, program evaluations can address a needs assessment, theory and design, implementation of a program, effectiveness, or efficiency (Rossi, Lipsey, & Freeman, 2004). These different models serve different purposes for the organization. For example, a needs assessment is usually performed to determine whether the organization is properly serving its population or whether there are other services the population can benefit from.
