TMA’s Exceptional Bench
The Industry’s Most Seasoned and
Respected Strategic Analytic Consultants
A True “Collective”
Although The Modeling Agency’s name is tongue-in-cheek, it’s by no means a misnomer. The Modeling Agency (TMA) provides data mining guidance and results for those who are data-rich, yet information-poor through a highly structured team of senior-level data mining consultants. To borrow a very fitting phrase from the popular Star Trek, NG® series, each consultant adds their own uniqueness to TMA’s collective experience — across numerous vertical markets.
The structure shared by TMA’s consultants is provided by a standardized data mining process and project management guidelines customized for data mining — which is inherently a discovery process. TMA’s business model provides a flexible framework, redundancy and continuity across its distributed organization.
TMA has been privileged to provide services and solutions for hundreds of highly recognizable organizations. Teams are assembled based on customer needs, the consultant’s industry, experience, project focus and size, availability, geography and technical requirements.
Senior Consultant Qualifications
Each Senior Consultant possesses three main qualities. First and most obviously, they are experts in data mining methods, tools and techniques. Secondly, they are business consultants who hold the experience and acumen to efficiently assess each business situation in view of the organization’s goals and objectives. Based on this assessment, senior consultants recommend a highly targeted project design to avoid common strategic pitfalls that plague the majority of data mining projects. Thirdly, they are able to engage and interact effectively with any team member in the organization including analysts, IT staff, functional managers, executive management and stakeholders.
The intersection of these traits arrives at a dynamic and very unique consultant in analytics. And maintaining a team of over a dozen senior consultants makes TMA a uniquely positioned organization to enable clients across industries to implement low-risk, high-impact projects on the first pass. Given this common platform for all TMA Senior Consultants, industry strengths for each staff member are listed below reflecting specific areas of expertise.
