The October 26, 2023 presentation, "Better Product Roadmaps: a Jobs To Be Done Case Study" is now available for Phase 5 clients and subscribers to download. This presentation was delivered at a Product Development and Management Association (PDMA) webcast featuring Phase 5 Partner Steve Hansen, Head of Phase 5 US Operations and Head of Data Analytics.
During the webinar, Steve delved into the paradigm-shifting world of "jobs to be done" (JTBD), providing guidance on how to move from identifying customer jobs to developing tangible products that will accomplish those jobs. Steve addressed questions such as:
- Why "jobs" instead of "needs"?
- How do we travel from "jobs" to products we can launch?
- What are the key elements of a successful activation?
In addition to sharing how product developers and innovators can apply JTBD within their own departments, Steve further explained how these leaders can bring their JTBD findings to life, and garner support for their projects across the organization. He explained how to move from insights to action, shedding light on some of the strategies and techniques that drive successful innovation. Some key takeaways from this webcast included:
- How JTBD fits within voice of customer ("VOC”) for innovation
- Why use JTBD for mid-range and long-term roadmaps
- How to do JTBD with organizational effectiveness
