Is Staff Aug Right for Your Learning Team?
Identify Your Problem
Our resources are 100% contract-based!
When nonessential hiring is temporarily put on ice due to mandated hiring freezes that are out of your control, it can send a chill up your spine. The good news is that project-based work doesn’t have to stop in its tracks because contractor expenses are usually allocated from a different budget. Our Innovators on Demand are the perfect contract-based resource to add to your team when hiring budgets are frozen in place.
Our resources add specialized and unique skill sets to your existing team!
Team skills can be like a box of chocolates — a mixed bag or worse…missing pieces like your favorite caramel (read: specific software experience) that you really hoped would be present in the mystery box of personnel. When your project requires a niche skill set, like rapid development, VR/AR, or innovative design, that you don’t have immediate access to on your available team, our Innovators on Demand can step in to be your on-demand caramel (AKA, the specialized expert your team needs to get the job done efficiently and effectively).
“You provided talented, skilled and experienced experts who became invaluable members of the learning team.” — Lisa Whitehurst-Wright, Learning Manager | Bank of America
Our resources can be scaled up or down on an as-needed basis!
When your team is bursting at the seams and working beyond capacity, it’s time to call in our Extra Hands You Don’t Have to Hold®. At any given point, Innovators on Demand® can be engaged quickly as scalable support to meet tight project timelines.
“Instead of having to assign internal resources at the beginning of a project when resource needs are still uncertain, they [ttcInnovations] have the ability to recognize and deploy additional resources when needed, such as to meet tight deadlines or for components that require a special skill set. This just-in-time ability to pull in resources instead of trying to predict when a resource might be needed is critical to budget and resource allocation. Essentially, this allows the bank to expand their head count of instructional designers who are permanently assigned throughout the project, instead of taking internal resources away from business-as-usual projects.” — Jeanne Flaherty, Program Manager
Our resources have the industry experience and cultural awareness needed to blend seamlessly within your existing team!
We believe in placing the right talent in the right environment. As training experts, we’re ready to take on the responsibility of onboarding your chosen resources so they can acclimate quickly to your team and company culture, using your preferred processes and standards. Through our onboarding strategies, we offer guidance and support for the continued success of your Innovators on Demand.
“The assigned team members integrated quickly into project routines due to their familiarity with the bank’s processes. It was like working with seasoned bank employees.” — Jeanne Flaherty, Program Manager, Learning & Leadership Development | Bank of America
Our resources are able to step right in to any project!
What do you do when one of your full-time staff members in a critical position within your learning organization announces that they are having a baby? After congratulating the expecting parent, it’s time to start strategizing how to cover for this team member for an extended leave of absence. ttcInnovations received a call from one of our long-term clients with just such a situation last year. While the team member wasn’t going on maternity leave, she was taking an extended leave of absence during a vital stage of a long-term training initiative deployment.
Innovator on Demand® Jenny Decker was able to step right in as project manager to keep the project moving forward while the employee was on leave. The employee was able to rest at ease knowing that Jenny had everything under control.

"We hit the double jackpot of superstars with Cindy & Sharon as our ID dream team and Jenny & Sharon as our PM legends! Turned into a triple-threat with Garrett on ITD work!! I was truly blessed to work with this great TTC team and wanted you to know their/your work was recognized up and down the ranks at the bank! We gave full credit to our awesome TTC team on every call and email exchange touting the wrap-up to this program. Thank you all so much for your outstanding work!"
“Everyone loves Doug! He fits right in with Amazonian culture.”
“Jennifer has done a great job thinking creatively about how we can leverage existing technology and mobile functionality to promote engaging and interactive experiences. She has also consistently met the project timeline with each deliverable. We look forward to continuing the work with her!”
"John was great!! He took our objectives and what we’ve already drafted, and quickly turned it around into a simple and intuitive activity. He was very responsive and helped with integrating it into our learning platform as well. I was pleased with his work, professional, and service. Thank you!"

"You provided talented, skilled and experienced experts who became invaluable members of the learning team."
"I wanted to pass on my deep appreciation for the work that Mary Ellen Van Buskirk did during her most recent assignment with the bank. Without exception, she was recognized for her skills, ability to work with clients and on-time delivery. She was very tactful —but strong — in attempting to change client thinking to a more instructionally sound approach. Kudos to Mary Ellen. She will be on my list if and when we get the OK to bring on staff aug again."
"She [Christy] has been outstanding! My team loves her and will be sad to see her go. She has been tremendously flexible and able to keep many projects in motion at one time. She understood the concept very quickly and promoted ideas that fit with what we were looking for (a contemporary, easily consumable curricula that would appeal to broad range of learners). She met deadlines, and exceeded expectations with the pieces she produced. This isn’t a business as usual model for us, so we were all in a situation where we were creating the rules as we went along and having Christy allowed us to approach development needs in a way that made sense for the project and program. Thanks!"
"Given the time constraints and availability of internal resources, I’ve had greater success working with ttcInnovations than in trying to put together internal teams. Their deep knowledge of the bank, this project, business acumen, and the ability to be agile with process, including being able to develop on the fly, provided the type of staff augmentation necessary for a major project. The Innovators training and experience allowed them to think beyond the structure of how the bank typically does things."
"I wanted to let you know how much I and my teammates have enjoyed working with Darla. She is regarded as a skilled ID with the perfect approach to difficult projects and clients. Darla will be missed and, when and if we are able to resource staff augs again, she will be on my list. Please pass on our thanks to Darla and the rest of the folks at TTC."
“Through collaboration and communication, the Innovators worked with the project team to coordinate a real-time review and update process to ensure the updates were made in time to meet our deadline. This effort required the team to reprioritize their day-to-day activities to meet this target. Their can-do attitude, sense of humor, and commitment to task were critical in meeting our deadline. Thank you for your tireless commitment and support over the last week.”
"I wanted to reach out and recognize Susan for her unbelievable patience and all of her efforts in helping us get our training published and live. She really has been a breath of fresh air to work with and has done a great job throughout this process! Thanks Susan!!"
"The team took the time to understand the project’s objectives and craft a comprehensive training to meet the objectives."
