Many companies are finding success by refocusing their approach to their customers, and by empowering their people to look at what they do in a different way. Welcome to Jobs Theory. Jobs Theory is a customer-centric management approach that reengineers how companies innovate, operate and market their products or services. With a focus on a deeper understanding of the “job” of a product or service, companies not only build stronger customer relationships, they gain a distinct competitive advantage. But this cannot happen without connecting this approach to the company’s talent.
At the end of this session, participants will have:
- The tools and resources for orienting teams and individuals towards new value creation
- A new perspective to align talent and management practices with shifting customer needs
- A method for simplifying and streamlining organizational systems and policies
- A way of thinking that will promote and expedite innovation decisions
The EDGE Executive Forum Series is designed with entire management teams in mind, always brings high-level thought to propel middle-sized businesses towards the cutting edge of best practices in value creation.
