ProductTank September: Jobs to be Done
Over a period of time technology evolves creating new ways of fulfilling customer needs. But in this transition, the underlying need of the user remains the same - that is the key to customer centric innovation. At this ProductTank event, we will focus on the tenet of ‘Jobs to be done’ (JTBD). JTBD is a popular framework addressing customer-centric innovation exploring further how to find the right problem to solve. It was widely publicized by leading practitioners like Clayton Christensen from Harvard Business School and Tony Ulwick the founder of Strategyn, an innovation consulting firm. Janet Bumpas: Janet comes from Silicon Valley where she was part of three startups: one went public, one was acquired by eBay/PayPal, and one crashed and burned. She has lived in the Netherlands for three years now. Currently, she is the Program Director at ScaleUpNation working with corporates and entrepreneurs helping them to scale their businesses. Previously, she was a Managing Director working for Startupbootcamp and Innoleaps. In addition to launching new products, Janet has consulted many of the world’s leading organizations on growth and profitability strategies. After receiving her MBA, she worked at The Boston Consulting Group, advising Fortune 100 companies. Janet has also spent time at Strategyn, helping clients with customer centric innovation. After moving to Silicon Valley, she worked at Razorfish as a Senior Strategist. Finally, Janet has extensive experience in international development (a.o., World Health Organization, the Health, Nutrition, and Population team of the World Bank, and TechnoServe).
