Description of Jobs to be Done

The theory of Jobs to be Done was developed by Clayton Christensen of Harvard Business School as a complement to the his theory of disruptive innovation. Jobs to be Done is a lens through which companies can view their innovation initiatives. People buy products and services to get a “job” done, and the products that are successful are those which help the customer get a job done faster, more easily and less expensively. When a company understands in detail what a functional job is, it is more likely to be able to create solutions to help the customer get a job done more effectively.
