                  Visionary Strategic Consulting

Visionary Strategic Consulting (VSC) was founded in 1992 by Robert C. Kramer, MBA, MA, a retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel and Certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business (SDVOB). The inception of VSC was in response to the formidable business and organizational challenges of a volatile and dynamic environment of changing demographics, rapidly evolving technology, expanding international commerce, shifting patterns among businesses and the under-utilization of human capital.  At VSC, we perceived that traditional methods of strategic planning were inadequate to deal with an increasingly complex environment in which business opportunities appear and disappear in shorter and shorter time cycles.  Mr. Kramer believed what was critically lacking was a business leader creative process and capability to think, plan and formulate business strategy in a highly complex, uncertain and hyper-competitive business environment.   At VSC, we have developed a unique state-of-the-art strategic planning process designed to assist leaders in transforming under performing organizations into high performing organizations.  By aligning people and strategies, and policies and systems with customers, businesses and organizations are able to change their core culture to be highly responsive to new opportunities and acutely sensitive to the dynamics of leading and implementing change.

Our Business Philosophy

Like all systems occurring in nature, sustainable market leadership and business survival requires an organization that is strategically flexible, adaptive, resourceful, creative and innovative.  As in nature,   business sustainability is the ability and willingness to adapt in harmony with its complex changing environment.  Organizations do not change, people change.  Organizations do not learn, people learn. Organizations are not successful, people are successful. People are successful not just by the work they perform, but by how they think, plan, relate to one-another and how they perceive and prepare for the future.  At the root of our philosophy is the fundamental notion that long-term business success has much less to do with being in a competitive race for offering novel products and services. Rather, business and organizational success has much more to do with creating a dynamic culture of thinking, planning and learning processes that tap the unlimited potential of people, both individually and collectively, to be entrepreneurial, creative, adaptive, and challenged to understand their niche markets by being continually adaptive and adding competitive value to their client/customer transactions.
