Perspectives and Challenges of Jobs To Be Done
Speaker
Speakers
Jim Kalbach (MURAL)
Tony Ulwick (Strategyn)

Jobs to Be Done is a business approach centered on turning customer insight into innovation. Though decades old, it has received significant attention recently.

In this live talk, Jim Kalbach, author of recently published The Jobs to Be Done Playbook, sits down with one of the pioneers of this theory, Tony Ulwick. Together they'll explore some of the core concepts of Jobs to Be Done, and discuss the present and future state of the field.

Jim Kalbach, Head of Customer Experience at MURAL, brings a somewhat different perspective than Tony on the Jobs to Be Done theory, as well as practical advice for putting it to use today.

Tony Ulwick, Strategyn Founder and CEO, was one of the principal architects of the Jobs to Be Done theory, and he continues the development of this ideology through his innovative work of today.

Maximizing the ROI of Design Thinking
Speaker
Speakers
Jeanne Liedtka (UVA Darden)
Mariano Suarez-Battan (MURAL)

Join Jeanne Liedtka as she digs into this truth in her upcoming book, The Innovator's Journey: How Design Shapes Us as We Shape Design. She discusses the importance of embedding design thinking into your day-to-day, and provides creative solutions for common dilemmas that innovators face.

Design Thinking - Filling the Product Gap in Your Agile Methodology
Speaker
Speakers
Anne Steiner (Cprime)

For the last 20+ years, we’ve all been diligently working to agile our way to product success.

In this session, we’ll discuss how inherent gaps in common agile methodologies have led to poor product strategy, flawed definition, and ultimately, subpar execution. We will highlight these gaps, hear real-life stories of their impacts on organizations, and learn how to avoid falling into these traps when developing our products.

Making Shift Happen at Emerson With Collaborative Product Design & Development
