From the Paper:

"The company follows a mission statement that it is committed to leading mass markets division and distribution. Its profits would be for its stakeholders and employees. It will develop through creative, flexible planning, diversification, employee development and commitment to the goals of the company. The company's goals are to use is time, technology and resources to provide a positive impact to society.
"MW's mission statement however could be interpreted in another manner. The company uses its "technology" which is basically buying other's technology through mergers and acquisition. This way the company does not really innovate or create as such but rather had only to create a one-time innovation, base other's innovation on its core creation and sell it to its customers. When such matter is considered then MW is not only stagnant in it's creative division but is too dependent on its subsidiary market. As a result the company's relationship business with its merged companies needs to be consistent throughout. Although the company's executive may assume that they own the subsidiary company therefore they need not keep a cordial professional relationship, this however could prove detrimental in the future of business."
