We've been advancing Customer Jobs theory and growing the community since 2012
All our services are based upon Customer Jobs theory. We believe in it so much, that we apply JTBD to our own business.
What Is Jobs to be Done?
The Quality paradigm has dominated innovation since the mid 80's. The idea is simple: if you improve the quality of your product, then more people will buy it. However, despite advances in this thinking, innovation success continues to elude many.
Jobs to be Done provides an alternative. Instead of thinking of market demand in statics, JTBD thinks in dynamics. It's not about objects described as customers needs or desired outcomes, it's about systems and processes that deliver progress.
Jobs to be Done is about growth. Creating growth for a product means increasing revenue - usually by acquiring new customers. That means growth comes from persuading consumers to stop buying whatever they're using today, and start buying from you.
Consumers buy and use products for the first time because they desire some change in their life, and they want to make progress towards that change. If they didn't want change, then they'd keep buying the same products over and over again.
When you recognize that you are in the business of delivering progress to consumers, you break free of thinking in terms of static needs and product categories.
