Here are 4 key questions to ask when determining a brand mission:

1. Why does this (company/organization) exist - what business-impacting purpose is it serving (that no other group can do)?

2. What big-picture goal is being more effectively met by this (organization/company/offering)?

3. How can I express the business value of the offering (in one sentence) to an executive whose main concern is with dollars and cents?

4. Who would look good - and why - by investing in this offering?
