Keith Groves, resource program manager, joined the Institute for Public Service's Center for Industrial Services in March 2005. CIS focuses on strengthening manufacturing in Tennessee to secure jobs for the citizens of our state.

Prior to joining CIS, Groves worked in retail sales for 11 years and in manufacturing for 16 years. During his 16 years in manufacturing, he became involved in lean manufacturing and has worked extensively in lean manufacturing since 1995. In 2006, he worked in the development of a new program for CIS called Business Transformation. This is a holistic approach to moving businesses into the future with the tools to increase their ability to compete in a global market and improve profitability.

The Lean for Government program was implemented in 2011, which helps state government focus on improving processes and to train state employees on lean methodologies. Groves has been the core deliverer of this program.
