Dashe & Thomson, Inc. was founded in Minneapolis in 1981 by Jean Thomson and Marilyn Dashe to provide business and technical writing seminars. By 1984, the majority of clients were asking Dashe & Thomson to design and develop their documentation and training.
While the company initially focused on training and documentation, Dashe & Thomson began to see that organizations were facing significant challenges as they implemented enterprise-wide software systems, integrated acquisitions, and re-engineered processes. Dashe & Thomson’s skills were perfectly matched to support these evolving needs.
Over the past 15 years, Dashe & Thomson has provided services that integrate change management, process redesign, blended learning solutions, and communication. Dashe & Thomson has developed into a robust learning and development company with proven processes and methodologies developed over 34 years in business.
When the technology bubble burst in the early 2000s, demand increased for Dashe & Thomson’s services. Companies realized that simply “flipping the switch” on enterprise software systems did not guarantee a return on investment. As a result, Dashe & Thomson became the go-to player for companies that were serious about fully utilizing their systems and processes.
In recent years, Dashe & Thomson has formalized partnerships with global software providers and implementation companies, to help their customers gain as-promised benefits related to their offerings. Dashe now works with clients throughout the United States and Europe. In 2008, Dashe & Thomson was named to Inc. Magazine’s list of the country’s 5000 fastest-growing companies, with a national ranking of 25th among education companies. We were recently named an IT Training Company to Watch by TrainingIndustry.com.
