‘Operational Excellence’ Is Focus Of ESD Breakfast

SOUTHFIELD — A look at what “operational excellence” can mean for your business and your life is on tap Nov. 4 in a Business Over Breakfast meeting at The Engineering Society of Detroit.

Jon Jipping, Chief Operating Officer at Novi-based ITC Holdings Corp., will be the speaker at the event, to be held at ESD Headquarters, 20700 Civic Center Drive, Suite 450, in Southfield. The event starts with registration and networking at 7:30 a.m. and Jipping’s presentatino from 8 to 9 a.m. Continental breakfast is included in the admission cost.

Jipping’s presentation starts with what operational excellence means at ITC, but that’s only the launching point. Attendees will leave with a three-step plan to make operational excellence their personal mantra.

Jipping says operational excellence is a way of doing business that champions people — and which turns team members into heroes. Like electricity itself, they’ll learn how the simple three-step plan can turn any enterprise and any career into “power and magic.” They’ll also learn how ITC turned the infamous summer 2003 blackout into a push for operational excellence.

The Nov. 4 event is $25 for ESD members and $40 for nonmembers. Or join ESD for $75 (a 25 percent discount) and attend the event for free. (This offer is good for new, first-time members only.)
