minneapolis skylineDashe & 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.
