How about a Mission Statement from TA.

TA sems to be going through major changes at the moment and quite frankly the natives are restless.

many of us have spent many years and a great deal of our time helping build TA to be the No1 tavel website on the planet.

With all the changes going on we just do not have a clue as to where we all stand in this, so TA could you come out with some sort of mission statement and just give us a bit of a clue to what is going on.

Ditto, but alas I can't envisage TA being willing to make it public.

Most mission statements seem to have been produced by a buzzword generator and bear little or no relationship to what the business is actually doing.

Any business worth its salt these days (and many which aren't) has a mission statement. Here is TA's:

"TripAdvisor's Mission is to help people around the world plan and have the perfect trip."

Their mission is to make money! If they can do it with this travel site by providing useful information to travelers, they will succeed. But it they ignore the usefulness and quality of the information they display, I am afraid they will fail.

maybe I should rephrase my question to TA to.

Can you tell us what the heck is going on.

In my experience many companies have more than one mission statement - internal and external
