Our Jobs to be Done Workshops

 
How do we deal with getting the founders’ vision into the minds of everyone at the company?
— Martin Henk, Co-Founder & Head of Product

Jobs to be Done (JTBD) is a new way to understand how demand for a product is created, and how innovators can meet that demand. While this thinking has a long track record of success, few business schools teach it, and it is only now attracting widespread attention.

But how can we uncover and design for a consumer’s Job to be Done? What data do we need? How do we go about gathering those data? Once we get them, how do we organize them so the insights are useful for product, marketing, and management teams?

We have designed this workshop to help you introduce Jobs to be Done thinking to your organization. This workshop is a hands-on, immersive experience of interviewing consumers, modeling important data from those interviews, and discussing how to apply those insights to strategic objectives.

At the end of the workshop, your team will:

  • Understand the theory and data elements of Jobs to be Done

  • Develop skills needed to get started gathering JTBD data

  • Know how to get started organizing those data into Jobs so it can be shared throughout the company

  • Design a way to integrate these data and models into your design process

  • Have a plan to get started
