This program will tell the story of how a 45 year old Skiles Group quickly transformed from a traditional, old school GC firm to a Lean Leader in the Industry.  Keyan Zandy will share the steps of evolution, from a philosophical shift inside leadership to infusing Lean throughout the corporate culture which ultimately has tripled the firm’s project volume in only three years.  The presentation will provide inspiring ideas and real-life lessons learned that clearly show how implementing Lean culture and processes can completely and transform a business.
