Overview

Please note: We have reached program capacity for all offerings of MIP Select for 2019. Please refer to the schedule for 2020 program dates and watch for email announcements regarding enrollment opening.

MIP Select is an intensive two-week learning experience focused on select cooperative utility management issues. This program is ideal for cooperative staff interested in broadening their knowledge and skills in a condensed, immersive learning environment developed in the tradition of the 48-year-old Management Internship Program (MIP).

Participants will return to work equipped with new information, tools and techniques to think more critically, ask better questions and make more strategic decisions. The results are improved relationships between functional areas and better management to continue the growth and success of your organization in a changing energy environment.

Learning Objectives
  • Develop a focus on leadership and impacting/implementing change

  • Cultivate a systems-thinking perspective on the co-op utility business

  • Gain strategic viewpoints of co-op organizations and the electric industry

  • Cultivate a focus on a culture of excellence providing value for members

  • Demonstrate foundations in financial literacy and business concepts


WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Mid-level managers and key contributors who will benefit from a closer look at the cooperative utility business beyond their functional expertise will benefit from MIP Select. Transitioning senior leaders from job roles across the cooperative who need a more holistic and strategic industry view may also benefit from this immersion program.

How do MIP and MIP SELECT Differ?

MIP Select incorporates select modules of the MIP at a scope and competency level that will help attendees develop important skills and abilities to lead them to success.

To learn more about the distinct characteristics of each program, please review this comparison chart (PDF).

Below are two examples where the MIP and MIP Select differ in scope and competency levels:

EXAMPLE A

  • MIP: Strategic thinking and execution are both explored and developed in the MIP. Focus is placed not only on identifying and defining strategic initiatives but also on execution of those initiatives.

  • MIP Select: The strategy module will focus on change/risk management and implementation of strategy via daily operations and goals.


EXAMPLE B

  • MIP: The focus is on power supply issues and approaches, including a full-day examination of the history of cooperative power supply, distributed energy resources, G&Ts, All Requirements Contract issues and risk as well as two other significant components — managing a power portfolio in a dynamic market and power supply for unaffiliated distributions systems.

  • MIP Select: This module concentrates on G&Ts and their role in the market, risks associated with supply and All Requirements Contract issues.
