A sigil (/ˈsɪdʒɪl/) is a type of symbol used in magic. The term has usually referred to a type of pictorial signature of a deity or spirit. In modern usage, especially in the context of chaos magick, sigil refers to a symbolic representation of the practitioner's desired outcome. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigil (more)
Outcome-Driven Innovation (ODI) is a strategy and Innovation process developed by Anthony W. Ulwick (Anthony Ulwick). It is built around the theory that people buy products and services to get jobs done. As people complete these jobs, they have certain measurable outcomes that they are attempting to achieve. It links a company's value creation activities to customer-defined metrics. Ulwick found that previous innovation practices were ineffective because they were incomplete, overlapping, or unnecessary. ODI attempts to identify important but poorly served, and unimportant but over-served, jobs and outcomes. ODI focuses on customer-desired outcome rather than demographic profile in order to segment markets and offer well-targeted products. Ulwick was granted the first of twelve patents on the ODI process in 1999... Clayton Christensen credits Ulwick and Richard Pedi of Gage Foods with the way of thinking about market structure used in the chapter "What Products Will Customers Want to Buy?" in his Innovator's Solution and called "jobs to be done" or "outcomes that customers are seeking". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outcome-Driven_Innovation (more)
