Speaker:  A 1990 graduate of the United States Naval Academy, R. Scott Bonney began his career as a Surface Warfare Officer before completing his Masters degree and entering the automotive industry in 1994.  As a Quality Engineer, he watched the early phases of pure Six Sigma deploy with GenCorp before moving to the Lean Just-in-Time, Just-in-Sequence assembly world of Johnson Controls, Incorporated (JCI) in 1999. 

As a Master Black Belt, Scott directed Lean and Six Sigma efforts across JCI�s ten North America Ford and Nissan Business Unit JIT facilities, overseeing 8 Process Improvement Managers, fifteen Black Belts, and 75 Green Belts running hundreds of projects across the billion dollar business.  It was during this time that he was introduced to and began experimenting with Theory of Constraints (TOC) methodologies.

Scott left the automotive industry in 2004 to become a LSS Master Black Belt for the Northrop Grumman Corporation.  Under full time contract to the Navy as they began their LSS journey, Scott spent the next four years as an instructor for NAVSEA�s new Lean Six Sigma College.  Running strategic planning sessions, developing curricula, and training more than 40 waves of Green Belts and Black Belts, he learned to bring together Lean, Six Sigma, and TOC methodologies under an integrated DMAIC structure, then worked to bring the Navy and ASQ together to develop a new Body of Knowledge and joint certification exam based on their integrated approach to process improvement.  Completed in 2005, the DoN/ASQ LSSBB exam became the gold standard for Navy Black Belt certification and significantly influenced the ASQ re-write of the CSSBB BoK in 2007.

Now a Master Black Belt with the Department of Defense Lean Six Sigma Program Office, Scott trains, mentors, develops curricula, and runs enterprise-wide projects, including two Consistency of Approach projects designed to align the entire Department of Defense in bodies of knowledge, curricula, and certification standards.

A Senior Member of the American Society for Quality, Scott holds ASQ certifications as a CQE, CQA, CMQ-OE, CSSBB, and DoN/ASQ LSSBB.
