We always kind of suspect that BS mission statements might correlate to BS operational performance. This rather brilliant post a) rates mission statements on a BS index and then b) plots the level of BS vs stock performance. e.g:
Mission: “On the most basic level, Peloton sells happiness.”

Includes some good stuff about how to integrate and connect remote teams.
