Mission StatementMission statement — standard format dictates that only the first word be capitalized Orange Mike 17:33, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Support. Mission statement is not a proper noun so the second word should not be capitalized. I don't think there will be any question here. Andrew (talk) 14:40, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

Without some reliable sources for the vaguely worded assertions about the utility of brief mission statements, clearly violates the prohibition of original research. John FitzGerald 01:06, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

The two external links do not seem to provide sources for all of the assertions in this article. John FitzGerald 01:14, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
it means shit.

Original Research[edit]

The info about McDonald's mission statement is obviously original research. Moreover, the mission statement isn't even accurate. McDonald's mission statement is: "McDonald's brand mission is to be our customers' favorite place and way to eat." Alphachimera (talk) 16:00, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

The cited article was published in 1997. The two examples might have been factual then, but they are not now. As noted above, McDonald's is different. I searched for Marriott's. They do not have a mission statement - only a vision statement. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DrDuke2000 (talkcontribs) 14:01, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

MS from American English[edit]

I am a new editor. Many hours spent reading guidelines, policies, etc, and all good common sense apologetics, which speak to me softly saying Most People (while arguable, 51 percent or more) would cap both words. I personally like the First word rule in WF Project article titles. It still just goes to show you, I am looking for wikipedia guidelines for stating mission statements in school articles. I will gladly add that I am interested in the cultural nuances of dialect from an inter-wiki frame of mind.O MC 4/ π ≠ 2  O = M C 4  22:26, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
