Also, Scott Griffith gained his reputation for world-class collaborative skills through success in working with high-consequence industries across the globe. He initially came to prominence in the field of aviation, and is widely recognized as the father of the airline industry’s Aviation Safety Action Programs (ASAP). In 1997, he received the Admiral Luis de Florez Award from the Flight Safety Foundation for his outstanding contribution to aviation safety. The Flight Safety Foundation cited this commendation: “Captain Griffith recognized that a more systematic approach, involving a high degree of employee-regulator-employer cooperation, was needed to fully identify, understand, and resolve potential safety problems and risks in airline operations. As the culmination of his many years of service on behalf of aviation safety, he designed and originated the Airline Safety Action Partnership program at American Airlines, which has now become an aviation industry standard.” In 2000, United States Surgeon General David Satcher invited Scott to advise a Department of Health and Human Services committee on Blood Safety and Availability. From there, Scott applied his unique approach to focus on improving outcomes across multiple values in healthcare organizations, collaborating with hundreds of hospitals across the country. Throughout his career, Scott has worked closely with government regulators in several industry sectors, and has led performance improvement implementations at numerous large healthcare systems, airlines, railroads, energy companies, and joint state and national collaborative projects. His experience brings insight into how the collaborative model supports a wide range of values and objectives, from patient safety and clinical outcomes to privacy, compassion, fiscal responsibility, customer satisfaction, and operational excellence. He has worked extensively with management, labor, and government officials and is widely recognized for his ability to help organizations achieve consensus results in support of common goals. In addition, Scott has 25 years of experience at American Airlines, first as an international captain, then as the managing director of Corporate Safety and Quality Evaluations. In recognition of his contributions to worldwide aviation safety, Scott has received numerous awards and citations from both government agencies and the private sector.
