Tab Pages:
Below this is the Main Screen which has 7 tab pages.

Each page has several statement rows containing a Label, the statement text and a link to an external document, all of which can be changed.
The Vision/Mission tab page name may be changed to suit your own language or planning style.
The other 6 pages may be changed to suit each plan’s requirements.

Please note that the Vision/Mission statements are also shown at the top of the Strategy Map as a means for displaying a complete Strategic Picture.
The text may also be changed in this Map module, and all statements can be displayed, exported and printed.

Vision/Mission tab:
The Vision/Mission tab is a special purpose tab page and contains areas for defining the 7 Primary Statements.
The statement labels can be changed but the commonly used names are: Vision, Mission, Core Objective/Goal, Market, Slogan, Comments and Notes.

SWOT Statements:
Below this is room for 4 SWOT statements. The commonly used Statement names are: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats.
You can redefine the SWOT header plus the statement names as required or simply leave them blank.

Other tabs:
Each of the remaining 6 tab pages has 11 statements.

General Notes:
There is no place in a Strategic Picture for verbose or multi-part statements.
It is common to find a "Vision Statement" which is the only Strategic Statement and contains several statements.
This must be broken down into multiple smaller statements and you can label them as required.
The Comments and Notes rows can be used as required, but it is important to note that all statements should be brief and be easily engaged.

Document Links:
Each Statement can link to an external document or website.
Many users of this software may already have some external documents or website links defined.
When you click in the Define-Link text box a small open file button displays.
Clicking on this button allows you to browse and locate a document.
To link to a remote website, you need to enter this manually or else copy and paste the address from your browser using the Windows copy and paste keys, control C and control V.

Summary:
The Vision/Mission Statement module allows you to define concise statements which can be used as the introduction to your Strategy Map and the basis for defining your Strategic Picture.
Links can be established to more verbose statements or documents.
The ability to display and edit the Vision/Mission statements inside the Strategy Map Module will be shown in the tutorial for this module.
