Dovetail hired Lay in May 2012 to work with Dovetail customers to analyze their current environments and improve them with technology and process implementation. Before joining Dovetail, Lay spent over a decade as an HR practitioner, following an early career in operations, IT and quality. He is recognized as a leading authority on the application of Lean tools and techniques in Human Resources, as well as having a wealth of experience in applying business technology to improve HR processes.
"We're thrilled to have a published author on our team," says Stephen Lynn, CEO of Dovetail Software. "Dwane's commitment to sharing his expertise with HR organizations worldwide is one of the reasons I hired him. Our mission as a technology vendor is not only to sell products, it's to help HR organizations gain efficiencies, improve their performance and lower costs. Reading Lean HR is a great first step."
Lay earned a Black Belt in Six Sigma, a classic process improvement program, and is a certified Senior Professional of Human Resources with HCRI. He speaks regularly on Dovetail webinars (http://www.dovetailsoftware.com/
"This book is born of my years in human resources and process work. I've been writing the Lean HR Blog for a few years, but moving to a book format will help spread the message to another community of HR Pros. And that's really the reason we are here," says Dwane Lay.
Lean HR is available in paperback on Amazon.com.
