Notre revue de la littérature permet de voir émerger un consensus autour de la définition de la déclaration de mission. En effet, il s’agit du texte singulier, synthétique, rédigé et communiqué par une organisation. Elle y spécifie quatre éléments : sa raison d’être, ses valeurs, son domaine d’activité et les priorités parmi ses parties prenantes. Ce texte est central dans sa stratégie et devrait résulter d’un processus participatif. La déclaration de mission sert surtout à motiver les employés et à prendre des décisions stratégiques et financières. La déclaration de mission a un rôle important dans la gestion des ressources humaines. En outre, elle peut permettre d’accroître la performance d’une organisation. En effet, la performance est une notion difficile à cerner. Or, énoncer une déclaration de mission permet d’établir un point de référence pour évaluer. De plus, la majorité des auteurs ayant cherché un lien entre la performance et la déclaration de mission ont pu l’observer.
