Nugg is expanding beyond team collaboration into how project teams are created. Nugg has developed a wholly new way for assembling project teams with its new team-building platform—TeamFit. TeamFit is designed to help management consulting and professional services groups build winning teams faster and provide consultants with a better way to get found for the projects that will develop their careers.
“TeamFit is a game changer for consulting companies.” says Via Science CEO Colin Gounden. “I was very aware of this challenge when I was on the board of Monitor Group (now part of Deloitte). Professional services firms need to become more agile and responsive to customers, and deliver more value more reliably. TeamFit will help them deliver on this.”
TeamFit relies on two key metrics to help create better teams: TeamFit™ score and TeamMatch™ score. The TeamFit score is a measure of how well the assembled team meets the project’s requirements and how likely the people are going to gel as a team. A project team with a high TeamFit score has a good chance of succeeding while one with a low TeamFit score is being set up to fail. The TeamMatch score is a measure of how well a person will match a given role. Putting people with high TeamMatch scores into a team will lead to a team with a high TeamFit score.
As global consulting and IT companies move towards contingent workforces, with critical roles often being provided by contractors, there is an intense need to find the right people for teams quickly and efficiently. As more companies create teams with mixtures of full-time and external resources, this pain and need will only grow.
TeamFit will also help these external consultants win more roles on projects by revealing projects that are coming up where their past experience are a good match. TeamFit will allow consultants to consolidate the records of their experience across all their work into a single location where it can be found and accessed by the people who would like to hire them for projects.
“TeamFit solves the central problem in delivering successful projects.” says company Chairman Amar Dhaliwal. “It brings transparency to the people responsible for delivering successful projects and for the tens of millions of consultants entering the contingent workforce, unmatched control of their careers and project experience.”
