In 1976, Mr. Dahl established Tor Dahl and Associates, serving as its chairman and chief executive officer since that date. In this role, he works with clients to create personalized service and tailor-made projects for them that focus on their financial and non-financial well-being. In addition to Tor Dahl and Associates, Mr. Dahl is as chairman emeritus of the World Confederation of Productivity.
Mr. Dahl has served on the Board of Directors of the American Productivity and Quality Center (APQC) for many years. Instrumental in the founding of Vinland National Center, he also served on their board for many years and in numerous capacities. Many other organizations count him as a current or past board member. Among them, Mr. Dahl excelled as a board member of the Science Museum of Minnesota from 1980 to 1986. From 1967 to 2008, he was a professor at the University of Minnesota.

While researching the work of Ragnar Frisch at the Norwegian School of Economics, he was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study in the United States.
