Dashe is helping to transform the way that McGraw-Hill does business. We are helping to define how Oracle EBS will impact the way users perform business processes and key performance indicators (KPIs) for each user audience. We will are tying business goals and KPIs back to the custom training we’re building for each group. In addition, we are creating an online learning and reference portal to support users during training, at go-live, and on-going.”
