"Jobs to be Done is highly organized and expertly crafted...Company leaders looking for ways to institutionalize innovation are sure to find it here." --Foreword Reviews Let your CUSTOMERS drive innovation. Successful innovation doesn't begin with a brainstorming session-it starts with the customer. So in an age of unlimited data, why do more than 50% of new products fail to meet expectations? The truth is that we need to stop asking customers what they want . . . and start examining what they need. First popularized by Clayton Christensen, the Jobs to be Done theory argues that people purchase products and services to solve a specific problem. They're not buying ice cream, for example, but celebration, bonding, and indulgence. The concept is so simple (and can remake how companies approach their markets)-and yet many have lacked a way to put it into practice. This book answers that need. Its groundbreaking Jobs Roadmap guides you through the innovation process, revealing how to: * Gather valuable customer insights * Turn those insights into new product ideas * Test and iterate until you find success Follow the steps in Jobs to Be Done, and you'll arrive at solutions that are both original and profitable.
