About Us
Since 1986, VISION Management Services has worked with more than 350 public, private and nonprofit organizations in Canada and the United States to help their leaders:

create a compelling vision
develop sound strategy
build accountable organizations
navigate complex environments.

Ruth Armstrong formed VISION Management Services in 1986 to promote the notion of organizational vision as a catalyst for change. Because the leader’s role in this process is critical, VISION Management Services helps leaders strengthen their capacity to lead strategically - through interactive workshops, leadership development programs, and executive coaching.

VISION Management Services helps groups have productive conversations. We bring an informed and creative outside perspective to strategic discussions at planning sessions, focus groups and retreats. Ruth's facilitation skills ensure that the process of developing strategy and enacting and evaluating organizational outcomes is results-driven. Consultant, Sandi Trillo, who joined VISION Management Services in 2004, works more behind the scenes to translate facilitated conversations into action-oriented reports; co-design and manage projects; consult with client stakeholders and conduct research.

Ruth is a recognized leader in the field of nonprofit governance. Her view of governance has been shaped by her hands-on experience and academic research. VISION Management Services’ approaches to governance and strategy development have been informed by complexity science.
