Chris Stern Announces Chapter Eight on BizIsSimple.Com

Chris Stern, author, management consultant, lecturer, and entrepreneur, announces the eight chapter of his evolutionary Web Book on

RALEIGH, N.C., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In chapter eight on BizIsSimple.Com, author Chris Stern is taking a deep look inside the widespread struggle of companies to come up with concise mission statements and clear visions. It is no surprise that Stern suggests that organizations should abandon their traditional consultant-driven way to strategize and develop more autarky in business administration.

"Companies should read their mission and vision statements from the perspective of an outsider, and ask themselves how they translate in the perspective of a third party", Chris Stern says. He goes on to suggest that traditional vision statements be replaced by more tangible goals, and provokes "why not just draw a picture of how the business should look like in the near or distant future and let that, at least internally, be the guiding document of an organization?"

Stern spends some time discussing the benefit of defining traits, or core rules. With these, an organization states what it needs to do well to succeed in the business it intends to be in. "It would actually be really simple. A mission statement should define the purpose of a business, the core rules provide guidance, and the vision statement indicate what the organization intends to achieve. Unfortunately, many are companies settling for blandness and sometimes outright nonsense when they define their guiding principles" Stern is further quoted.

This chapter provides readers with a number of highly practical tools and checklists to develop concise purpose statements, appropriate core rules, and clear vision/goal statements.

The goal of is to look at business administration in an extremely pragmatic way and to help readers find tools they can immediately apply in day-to-day business.

The web book will be an ongoing work. In contrast to paper publications, the author can add and change content based on readers' input or updated knowledge. The new chapter is called "Goal" and is available for immediate reading at

Every chapter comes with a downloadable presentation and the author plans to add video sequences in the near future. Until further notice, access to the site is free of charge.
