Digital workplace has become an integral part of the modern world (Thomas, 2011). Employees are communicating and collaborating digitally in unprecedented ways, where people are working remote without having handshake and/or a face to face experience one another (Suri, 2019). In such work environments, purpose oriented team development is an archetypal ingredient in the formation of strong team destined to success (Gregory, 2018). This article closely examines Tuckman’s model of team formation and tries to stress the relevance of the model in building a focused kind of digital team in the digital world. To this end, the study emphases on descriptive analysis of the information gathered from secondary data sources, along with primary data obtained thru questionnaire and interviews from IT professionals engaged in digital teams. The finding exhibits that Tuckman's model can have a significant contribution in an attempt to build a purpose oriented digital team in the IT industry, and by so doing enhance precision, innovation, and aptitude while adding upon the quality of the product.
