    I have some AS Business Studies homework, and I have come across a question which I am at a dead end with. I really do not understand this one question. If anyone could help me, it would be greatly appreciated.
    "Explain the relationship between [business] mission and [business] objectives'

    I know what a mission and objective is... I just cannot explain the relationship between them. I've said that objectives are like stepping stones to reach the mission statement, and that a mission statement is similar to a long-term goal, but again, that's not explaining the relationship between the two.

    Again, help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks! :]

    An objective is very much what the business wants to achieve, whilst the mission is what the business outlines. For example: British Airways objective may be to get a profit of £10,000 this year, whilst their mission is to become the head of the airline market. The relationship they share is that each ends with a successful target, making the business more successful. They cannot complete their mission without meeting their objectives. So they share a relationship in a sense of one cannot be efficiently completed without the other.

    (Hope this makes sense :/)
