Adding Value With Your CTP Teams Individual Skore

We have had a lot of reaction already to the new sKore feature within CTP Teams.

However I want to take just a quick moment to clear up one misconception about sKore.

While sKore can be used as a indicator of a person’s potential value to a team it is not meant to indicate that person’s actual value in absolute terms.

A high sKore means that the person is performing well in the activity areas that the sKore formula measures…but it does not measure everything.

The overall value a person brings to the team is far more complex than that and would be difficult, if not impossible to measure.

Not everyone on a team has time to do the things every day which would give them a really high sKore but they may do other tasks which are vital to the smooth and efficient running of the team such as

  • Organizing the team blog,
  • compiling data,
  • providing motivation,
  • advising the team leader,
  • co-ordinating team tactics,
  • devising team tactics,
  • networking with other teams,
  • creating splash pages,
  • spearheading team campaigns,
  • assigning credits and so on.

These are all roles that may take place within a team but how are they to be measured? These are tasks which may be spread out over multiple team members and many of them are vital but won’t be reflected in your sKore.

Tom Wacker summed it up very well in a comment on this blog where he said: “Iโ€ll tell you what. This is big for us โ€˜number freaksโ€™. More data=better decisions.”

Tom Wacker comment on sKore for CTP Teams

Your sKore is a tool which is good at measuring some things that a potential team member can do.

It is not a measure of someone’s overall worth to a team. Good team leaders will instinctively know this. You need a good overall mix of people with different skill sets to have a great team. The sKore value is just but one indicator.

    Thank you both for this post. I was sitting on the fence about sKore but this helps to clear up a lot of issues.

  5. Marye says:

    sKore more and more and more…great motivation to be an active participant – great thinking

  6. Wendy Browning says:

    I still say that your worth to your team is not summed up with a number, however it is nice to know your value in a number.

  7. “”measuring “” is a good thing as long as its not needles involved lol
    Like it !!!

  8. ‘I am not a number’
    but 34 will do for the moment!

  9. Sunny Suggs says:

    One of the other very important tasks of team members is the role of “trash talker”. If that were figured into my sKore, I’d be above Elina!

  10. Can’t wait to see the sKoreBoard to find other heavy weights to recruit for the Uber Surfers team ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Ken Wolff says:

    I like the sKore! I am + 13 from yesterday. I am in a race with Justin…LOL

  14. Charlotte says:

    I love numbers and statistics so I think sKore is a great feature.

  15. Patricia Dean says:

    Thanks

  16. I like watching my Skore go up and down lol

  17. Shelayne says:

    I am the COP (Chief of Personnel) at CTP Team Masters but hey I am not policing anyone–though I have teased everyone by saying I am going to ask Brenda to loan me her cane! LOL!

    On a more serious note, it would be interesting to know what is the breakdown of the SKore so that folks who are inclined can strengthen weak areas.

    • Patrick Griffin says:

      There are currently no plans to break down how the sKore is calculated for the very reason given above. It would lead to people doing certain activities just to increase the number rather than doing things that they would normally do as team members.

  18. Sig says:

    What to say, you folks said it all…an other interesting add-on to this new circus in Town ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thx for the post

  19. This is a stat that I’m unsure of at the moment, since it doesn’t seem to be in line with the actual points contributed by various team members either.

  20. Karen Kuty says:

    It will be interesting how this stat affects things–will teams “recruit” based on Skores or on CTP level (indicating total XP earned)….

  21. Michel says:

    I love stats and number
    Thanks for sharing

  22. Georgia Stewart says:

    As Mark Twain once said – there’s lies, damned lies, and statistics ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. thanks for clearing about Skore
