Stated goals

Official statements of what an organization says-and what it wants its stakeholders to believe-its goals are mean stated goals. However, stated goals-which can be found in an organization’s charter, annual report, or public relations announcements or in public statements made by managers-are often conflicting and influenced by what various stakeholders think an organization should do.
