Scott teaches in Purdue's School of Engineering Technology where he helps young engineers learn and apply the deep skills of collaboration and agile approaches to strategy, innovation, and project management. This is an ABET accredited program and the courses Scott teaches focus on the following ABET outcomes:

  • An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team
  • An understanding of and commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity
  • A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context

Scott's Engineering Technology students learn Strategic Doing as part of their coursework; but Scott is also a regular guest instructor in other Purdue colleges and departments as well as at other universities. Within Purdue he teaches strategy and collaboration regularly in the Colleges of Pharmacy and Health and Human Sciences. He has or is currently teaching as a guest lecturer or adjunct faculty at University of North Alabama, University of Indianapolis, University of Oklahoma, American University, and University of Southern New Hampshire.

In addition to teaching Strategic Doing Scott has taught the following courses:

  • Global Professional Issues in Engineering Technology (undergraduate)
  • Professional Career Development in Engineering Technology (undergraduate)
  • Foundations of Public Policy (graduate)
  • Housing Policy & Development (graduate)
  • Urban Neighborhood Revitalization (graduate)
  • Qualitative Research Methods (graduate)

Scott also teaches Strategic Doing and Technology Innovation Management in workshops and seminars for corporate, community, and other organizational clients. Strategic Doing trainings include half and full day introductions as well as a 2-1/2 day practitioners training. Workshops on Technology Innovation Management are offered in partnership with Fraunhofer IAO based in Stuttgart, Germany.

Scott and his colleagues at the Purdue Agile Strategy Lab are also working with 50 different universities across the U.S. to help redesign the undergraduate engineering experience. This working is being done in partnership with Stanford University and Venturewell and funded by the National Science Foundation. They are also supporting a similar initiative at Purdue in the Mechanical Engineering Department. More about this work can be found at Hacking Engineering.
