Build a culture of creativity.

Scott Jancy’s background brings together humanities, design, and leadership. He helps organizations set vision and strategy, and develop solutions to emerging problems and evolving human needs. He’s equal parts adviser, connector, facilitator, and strategist.

Scott has worn several hats over the course of his career: historian, architect, Naval Officer, planner, and most recently, as a consultant. Trained as an historian and an architect, Scott has a background that gives him an understanding of how systems evolve and the role that design can play in effecting cultural, economic, and social change. A systems thinker, he views every organization from the perspective of a system in balance.

Scott is currently writing a book entitled The Architecture of Business: A Practical Guide to Creative Leadership and was recently profiled by Irish Tech News. He’s passionate about the role that design and leadership can play in creating change.

The Focus of the Blog

Scott blogs about business, design, culture, and technology. Each post explores the interconnections between issues and market sectors with intent to give one a broader perspective on a particular topic. This broader awareness, or understanding, of how problems fit into a larger picture is what drives his work. Scott helps people see the connections between disparate elements so that they can make more informed decisions as leaders. These daily posts serve as the foundation for reports that are generated for client consulting or research projects.

Travel & Education

Scott has currently traveled to over thirty countries on four continents for various consulting projects in the public and private sector. This experience has reinforced his view that small actions in our daily lives can make an impact on people in other parts of the world due to the role of technology in our increasingly interconnected society.

He received a Master of Architecture degree with a focus on culture, landscape, and environmental design; and a B.A. in History with an emphasis on Modern Europe.
