Abstract Sets out to demonstrate the usefulness of vision statements to self-directed work teams, taking ideas from the development of vision within teams in an organization of around 1,000 employees. Considers barriers to the creation of a shared vision in which employees have a stake, putting forward the concept of ¿team-sized vision¿ as a means of coping with the identified problems of ¿size¿ and ¿ownership¿ with regard to organization-sized vision. Outlines various advantages of team-sized vision, e.g. enabling positive discussion of change and acting as a strong motivator. Sets out a process for the generation of team-sized vision, broken down into four main steps. Concludes that the process can be undertaken with relative ease and that vision is for all levels of the organization--not just top management.
