In 2007, Scott joined the Juran Institute, a global quality management consulting firm, as executive vice president of the company’s newly formed healthcare practice. After growing the division to more than $6 million in annual revenues in two years, he left to start work on AchieveIt, a technology firm that provides cloud-based strategic planning software across multiple industries. Scott raised more than $5 million in venture capital funding and grew AchieveIt to more than 300 clients throughout North and South America before leaving to focus his career on the cultural aspects of execution.
