How Do You Measure Vision?

Regardless of the business process or approach the fundamental overarching concept most "difficult to develop, assess or manage is vision". Try it.
I invite commenters to address how they measure "vision" or how they know good "vision" from bad "vision".
With today's tech focus, the ability to crunch numbers in nanoseconds, have we developed corresponding new ways to develop new "vision" processes? I think not.
If vision predates strategy, and strategy is essential to the four quadrants of the Balanced Scorecard, what happens if our vision is flawed?

The Future of Vision....

If we agree that vision is by definition a view of the future and that the future is not predictable then we have to conclude that it is not possible to know if a vision is a good or bad. What we can do is evaluate whether our vision is complete, we can expose it to others, test it and seek to ensure it is robust, well constructed, communicable etc but this will not guarantee its birth. I think we also must recognize that any vision will only come about because one or more passionate people believe in it and want to make it happen in the face of resistance or apathy. I do not think 'envisioning' is that difficult or that visions have to be overly 'managed' but enabling people and companies of the need for and value of meaningful and actable visions as a way to test strategy and progress is.
