Jobs to be Done Sydney meet-up review

I’ve been meaning for the longest time to do some reading on Jobs to be Done framework, but like so many little jobs it had remain undone. Until Monday night that is when Christian Lafrance organised the first Sydney meet up at the Trinity Bar in Surry Hills. Christian has presented on Jobs to be Done at UX New Zealand  with ABC colleagues Justin Sinclair and Raymond van der Zalm and he has been incorporating the method into UX and product strategy and design projects at the ABC.

User centric change management

I had the privilege to work on a succession of projects relating to the staff experience at my time at Different. My colleague Christian LaFrance presented some of the learnings from these projects and a few others undertaken by the team at the recent Service Design Network Global Conference in Paris (28-30 October, 2012) and he has shared his presentation on Slideshare. Many of these projects involved a participatory design approach to achieve change that took employee needs into account and that was employee led.
