The Customer Job To Be Done Canvas - Prototype


Published on

At an increasing rate (according to IBM C-Suite studies) companies are seeing that they need to figure out ways to put the customer at the center of their attention and decisions. But do businesses have the data or insight to put them there?

In the MIT Sloan Management Review article Finding The Right Product For Your Product Clayton M. Christensen, Scott D. Anthony, Gerald Berstell and Denise Nitterhouse discusses the idea of understanding what jobs customers are trying to solve and then figuring out the reason people are pulling the product into these jobs.

As many others I am currently prototyping a tool for this theory (Work-In-Progress) and my work so far can be seen and downloaded here.

I'm employing the same strategies towards my own business as I do with my clients, therefore the tool is still just a prototype being redesigned and redesigned again. But hopefully there are people out there interested in trying the tool out, give feedback and help on the way forward. This tool is not a parking lot for an idea - but a continuous, hopefully never-ending process.

Anthony, Gerald Berstell and Denise Nitterhouse in their MIT Sloan Management Review Article Finding The Right Job For Your Product. It is also extended/influenced by Shoshana Zuboff’s McKinsey Quarterly Article Creating Value in The Age of Distributed Capitalism. THIS TOOL IS A PROTOTYPE. NEVER USE IT AS IT IS.

GOOD LUCK 8BARRIERS THE JOB THE CUSTOMER THE OPPORTUNITIES MOTIVATION What motivated the customer to pull the product into their life?

In the customer’s words - what is the job they are doing that causes them to pull the product or service into their life? #ROLE FUNCTIONAL What is the functional role of the job?
