Jeff is an experienced expert applying Operational Excellence principles to companies and focusing organizations on delivering sustained results.

His first foray into Operational Excellence was simply common sense; he and his team re-designed the communications plan for submarines operating in a battlegroup to make it more user-friendly. It became the basis of the standard for Atlantic Fleet submarines.
