Overview

PepsiCo’s mission has scored 2.6 points in our evaluation, which is an average score. The statement doesn’t include any information on who are the company’s customers, what technologies are used or competitive advantages that the PepsiCo has. The company mentions only one value, integrity, out of 4 values that are used in our evaluation. Yet, the main drawback of PepsiCo’s statement is that it’s product-oriented. Product-oriented unlike customer-oriented missions focus on what products to produce and services to provide to the market rather than satisfying customers’ needs. Product-oriented missions become obsolete if the company ventures into new product markets because it no longer accurately describes the company’s business.

Therefore, PepsiCo should improve their mission by adding the missing components and changing it to customer-oriented mission.
