Growth and Alignment Begin with Understanding Demand
Jobs to be Done 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.
We have designed this 1-day workshop to share the latest thinking about Jobs to be Done theory and how Demand Generation Analysis, our new, high-intensity research sprint, reveals what customers really want.
The workshop is an immersive experience consisting of short lectures, live customer interviews and hands-on practising. Participants will learn how to collect and model demand generation data and create insights that can help define strategic objectives and make better design and product decisions.
After the workshop, participants will:
Know how demand for products and services is created and how this causes consumers to buy, keep using or stop using them
Understand how Demand Generation Analysis enables teams to obtain, organize and communicate data that describe what customers really want
Gain skills to gather and model demand generation data and create actionable insights for Design, Product and Strategy decisions
Have ways to integrate demand generation data and models into their day-to-day work, e.g. into a design process
What is the agenda?
1. Lecture: Learn about Jobs to be Done theory Demand Generation Data
2. Exercise: Practice gathering and modelling Demand Generation Data from live customer interviews
3. Share & Debrief: What did everyone discover?
4. Exercise: Apply Demand Generation Data to a design process such as Progress Directed Desig
