Ruth Armstrong and Sandi Trillo of VISION Management Services (VMS) in Toronto, Canada are the primary authors of Eyes on the Edge. VMS works with the leadership teams of nonprofit organizations to develop strategy and strengthen governance. As part of this work we keep our eyes on trends and forces in the environment that might impact our clients. We consider the implications and publish an occasional blog as a way to expand the conversation and promote strategic thinking.
