Who We Are
Vision Continuity is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) that provides continuity expertise to government and commercial clients. Our organization functions in multiple verticals and our code of ethics express our core values of serving, caring, and relationship building.
With nearly 20 years of experience providing IT and business consulting services to the federal government, the leadership team at Vision Continuity saw an opportunity to bring the “no-fail” continuity planning methodology, required by the military, to the private sector.
The company was formed during the COVID-19 global pandemic to serve the needs of both government and commercial clients across the nation. The scale of the impact caused by COVID-19 on government operations and traditional business was unprecedented. Many organizations found themselves woefully unprepared to deal with the consequences brought on by the pandemic. Consequences such as sporadic and long-term closures, technological challenges, staffing shortages, corporate culture challenges, and vendor and supply chain interruptions. Organizations that had done some continuity planning learned that their plans were insufficient at best, or nothing more than “paper-work drills,” i.e. template-based plans that were only developed to pass an audit, and never tested for actual feasibility. Approximately one-third of U.S. small businesses that were open in January of 2020 were still closed in March of 2021.
Vision Continuity brings practical, mission-focused continuity planning to government and commercial clients to address these challenges and more to keep organizations running when unforeseen events would otherwise cripple operations.
“A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”
– King Solomon
