The latest vision statement of Microsoft is:

Empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more

To do this, building the best-in-class productivity services and platforms for the mobile-first, cloud-first world is at the heart of Microsoft strategy, with three interconnected and bold ambitions:

  • Reinvent productivity and business processes
  • Build the intelligent cloud platform
  • Create more personal computing


In 2013, Steve Ballmer had the following mission statement for Microsoft:

At Microsoft, our mission and values are to help people and businesses throughout the world realize their full potential.


The most classical and successful Microsoft mission statement is from Bill Gates:

A PC in every household and every home
