How do you create successful products? By asking customers what they want? By matching market trends? Or rather by understanding the jobs that users try to get done? Believing it’s the latter, Hannes Jentsch and I gave a talk at Berlin ProductTank in July 2015 discussing how to design products against customer jobs.
In the talk we shared our experience from applying Jobs-to-be-Done tools in agile environments at Nokia’s HERE business for 2 years. We described JTBD as a framework, mind as well as set of tools and methods. Furthermore, we mapped and presented key JTBD tools against the lean product development process and discussed them in detail.
