Partner Philosophy

We Partner with Our Clients

There are plenty of ways to be an ethical consultancy. We won't speak for how anybody else does it, but Algmin Data Leadership exists to help our clients maximize their value from data. Full stop.

We will not harbor any relationship that might cause us to have, whether perceived or real, any commercial interest that supersedes the needs of our clients. We don't partner with our "favorite" software vendors. We work with anybody our clients work with, and leverage any tool or platform vendor that helps our clients maximize data value. We will independently build our expertise across many available options and always strive to act in the best interests of our clients. If anything isn't right for a client, we must be able to inform them without debate or reservation. It kind of blows our mind that we even need to say this.

We should also say that Algmin Data Leadership does partner with training and content providers that offer skills-building opportunities. Learning to become more self-sufficient is a universally worthwhile pursuit that does not conflict with strategic and operational decisions. Additionally, we recognize that we will ourselves need a hand from other service providers from time to time, so we will not hesitate to partner-up when it is prudent to do so, and avoids any conflicts-of-interest.

All that said, we have seen too many good consulting organizations lose their way through profit-motivated "partnerships." That will not be us. We promise.

Our Story

Algmin Data Leadership was founded in 2018 by Anthony J. Algmin, a longtime data management and strategy consultant who had become frustrated with the approach of other consulting firms. These organizations seemed to have lost their way, either by peddling ideas that clients would never be able to implement--or by positioning their own personnel as the only way clients could accomplish their goals. Believing that data is too important for organizations to outsource, Mr. Algmin felt there must be a better way.

By creating an organization fundamentally committed to helping clients build data self-sufficiency, Algmin Data Leadership avoids the conflicts-of-interest that  diminish the value provided by competing options. Algmin Data Leadership looks for ways to deliver value that lasts long after our engagement ends. This is our Data Value Promise™ -- a cornerstone of everything we do.

Algmin Data Leadership today is at the forefront of Data Leadership, teaching organizations how to make the most of their data through every mechanism imaginable. Whether reading our book or other writings, taking an in-person or online training class, or inviting Algmin Data Leadership to spend some time with your organization in a consulting engagement--we appreciate that you are here, and want to serve your needs however we can.
