something like the groups are arranged by the number of electrons in their outer shell increasing across the table
and the proton number (nuclear charge) increases across the table?

Elements are arranged with increasing proton number across periods (an increased nuclear charge)
Elements are arranged in groups according to the number of electrons in their outermost energy shells which increases across the table
something like that
