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.


Keyan Zandy, Skiles Group – Keyan is an industry-recognized leader in Lean Construction and has spoken both nationally and internationally on Lean and various other topics.  As Skiles Group’s Director of Operations, he is responsible for providing leadership, direction, and guidance by developing innovative processes, tools, and organizational structure.  Keyan is the former chairman of the LCI Dallas/Fort Worth Community of Practice, and now serves as “Lean Leader.”

James Eastham, Skiles Group – James is Vice President of Operations for Skiles Group.  From preconstruction through project closeout, James provides leadership and direction for all construction services.  James presented at the 28th annual LCI Congress this past fall in California.
