Sneak Peek: Why Does Your Customer Hire Your Product? Design Thinking Using Jobs-to-be-Done

Business 101 says you need to know your customer 

  • Who they are
  • What they want
  • What they need

This should be a slam dunk, right?  Knowing your customer should make it easy to build products they will buy. 

So why do we struggle?

Why is there such a disconnect between the designer who wants to innovate and the client who just wants to push a button? 

Maybe someone should be asking why they need it...

These are the questions Bryan Maleszyk, Director of Experience Design at Connective DX, will be addressing at the next New Hampshire User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA) meetup, Wednesday, May 23rd at Mad*Pow in Portsmouth.

Maleszyk will be talking about how the Jobs-to-be-Done framework and how it can help you define the underlying why so you can build products customers want to buy.

This is the big wow.  Having the answer to why your customer buys is the difference between success and failure. I don't know about you, but if Jobs-to-be-Done can put me on the right track, I want to hear about it.
