HOW TMA IS UNIQUE – AND THE BEST AT WHAT WE DO

Unlike any other training in the marketplace, TMA’s provides live, engaging training on the dynamics specific to organizational analytic implementation. TMA’s full analytic process framework addresses analytic team role functions and unique soft skills required for projects to actually be implemented and deliver real value. TMA’s training is vendor-neutral, and facilitated by seasoned consultants who actively engage in analytic implementations in medium and large organizations.

As the illustration shows, TMA’s training allows participants to join a truly elite group of high-value analytic leaders. No other organization delivers analytic training at this level.

Unlike methodological training which can be effectively delivered in a self-paced on-demand format, TMA’s strategic experiential training requires live interactive engagement. Participants directly experience the natural messiness of organizational analytics and learn first-hand how to overcome common pitfalls that plague the majority of enterprise implementations.

Learn how to plan and manage data analytics projects effectively from the start. Through structured case-driven demonstrations and guided breakout sessions, practitioners and leadership collaborate to address the unique dynamics inherent in larger organizations.

TMA’s training will place your organization months – if not years – ahead in analytic process research, planning and development, and virtually eliminate implementation risk.

WHO TMA TRAINS

TMA’s training engages data scientists, analytic practitioners, functional managers, subject matter experts and leaders in business, industry, government and academia. Real-world project cases, a formal organizational-level implementation framework and guided discussion enables team rolls to collaborate effectively. This minimizes common dysfunction between organizational roles to apply the right talent at the right times toward a clearly defined purpose.

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO TRAIN WITH THE MODELING AGENCY?

    • When you take TMA’s training, you can expect to collaborate and engage in a full-scale organizational analytic implementation. This helps you directly experience how predictive modeling can be effectively used in your organization. TMA’s progressive exercises not only make analytics implementation easier to understand, but reinforce the strategy necessary to structure your analytic projects.
    • Along with demystifying analytics, TMA’s courses are guaranteed to make you effective more quickly than any other training program available. TMA’s highly seasoned trainers guide you through cycles of brief lecture, demonstration and guided workshops to efficiently transfer process knowledge and reinforce skills.
    • Whether the Classroom or Live Online Experiential, TMA’s events are the most engaging and immersive available. A recent professional training study found that 97% of on-demand course participants do not complete their training. In contrast, 100% of participants who start TMA’s training stays to completion, whether in the Classroom or Live Online. TMA has taken every measure to make the online experience feel and perform just like classroom. Participants interact, benefit and depend on the contributions of others in the class. 
    • TMA clients understand that developing accurate models isn’t enough. Multiple roles in the organization must be effectively engaged in order to arrive at results that are measurable, accountable, understandable, actionable, impactful and residual. As such, effective knowledge transfer requires live participation.
    • You will be exposed to a process development methodology from a non-vendor point of view. Numerous popular open-source and commercial software solutions will be leveraged in the training, not to showcase tools, but to illustrate methods and demonstrate live examples. TMA’s unbiased approach will guide you through the many options that meet your needs, not the interests of a particular software vendor or solution provider.
