SG Collaborative Solutions
Scott Griffith is the Co-Founder and Managing Partner of SG Collaborative Solutions, LLC. Scott gained his reputation for world-class reliability and collaborative skills through success in high-consequence industries across the globe. He came to prominence in the field of aviation, and is widely recognized as the father of the airline industry’s landmark Aviation Safety Action Programs (ASAP). He is the recipient of the the Flight Safety Foundation’s Admiral Luis de Florez Award for his outstanding contribution to aviation safety.

In 2000, the United States Surgeon General, David Satcher, extended a personal invitation to Scott to advise a Department of Health and Human Services committee on Blood Safety and Availability. From there, he applied his unique approach to focus on improving outcomes across multiple values in healthcare organizations, collaborating with hundreds of hospitals across the country. In 2006, he retired early from American Airlines as an international captain and the Managing Director of Corporate Safety and Quality Evaluations and dedicated himself to performance improvement at numerous large healthcare systems, airlines, railroads, energy companies, emergency medical services, fire and law enforcement agencies.

In 2013, he along with business partner, Paul LeSage, estabished SG Collaborative Solutions, focusing the business on helping organizations achieve sustainable high reliability. Scott and Paul are the principal architects of the Hidden Science of Reliability™ model of socio-technical improvement, bringing the science of reliability to diverse industries and organizations across the United States and Canada. Their collaborative engagements have produced dramatic results, supporting improved outcomes across a wide range of values, from patient safety and clinical outcomes to privacy, compassion, fiscal responsibility, customer satisfaction, and operational excellence. They have pioneered multiple predictive risk management strategies, including socio-technical probabilistic risk assessment (STPRA) and both Learning and Reliability Management Systems (LMS and RMS). They have worked extensively with management, labor, and government officials and are widely recognized for their ability to help organizations achieve consensus results in support of common goals.

Scott holds a Master of Science degree in Physics from Texas A&M University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Physics from Texas Christian University. His master’s thesis contributed to the research and commercial development of the airborne windshear LIDAR project under grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
