Master Black Belt, Lean Six Sigma, Target Corporation, Brooklyn Park, MN, USA
Scott is passionate about using the Lean Six Sigma methodology to address the seemingly unsolvable. He became a project manager early in his career and was given the opportunity to address a few projects that others could not resolve. After some early successes, he was hooked on the concept of battling hidden root causes to drive positive change. Scott was an early adopter of the PMP methodology and earned his certification while working as an International Project Manager for Emerson Electric. After an eCommerce consulting stint at Pillsbury, Scott joined Best Buy as the Manager of eProcurement before becoming trained and certified under the tutelage of the George Group as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and Master Black Belt. After 10 years supporting Corporate, Field, and Call Center operations for Geek Squad, Scott joined Target Corp. as the Master Black Belt for Information Security. His current role entails training and coaching individual Cyber Security Teams on Lean Six Sigma principles and also driving his own initiatives to protect the data of the guests of Target. The wildly competitive and chaotic nature of the retail environment continues to suit him perfectly.
