Tony Ulwick: Jobs-to-be-Done Is For More Than Just Milkshakes. Milkshake Marketing was designed as a tool for marketing, not innovation. (more)

Tony Ulwick: Customer Segmentation Is Soured by Milkshake Marketing. In Clayton Christensen’s well-publicized milkshake marketing video and HBR article “Marketing Malpractice: The Cause and the Cure,” he proposes executing customer segmentation differently: around the job-to-be-done... his milkshake marketing example is fundamentally flawed. The flaws show just how hard it is to apply jobs-to-be-done thinking correctly. (more)

Ashivom Bandaralum: The text and the code go hand in hand. Sometimes I hear of “opinionated” software... What happens if the software turns out to be something the author of a site wrote for themselves? It’s more than opinionated. It’s personal. (more)

Daniel Kahneman (/ˈkɑːnəmən/; Hebrew: דניאל כהנמן; March 5, 1934 – March 27, 2024) was an Israeli-American author, psychologist and economist notable for his work on hedonic psychology, psychology of judgment and decision-making. He is also known for his work in behavioral economics, for which he was awarded the 2002 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences (shared with Vernon L. Smith). His empirical findings challenge the assumption of human rationality prevailing in modern economic theory. With Amos Tversky and others, Kahneman established a cognitive basis for common human errors that arise from heuristics and biases, and developed prospect theory. In 2011, he was named by Foreign Policy magazine in its list of top global thinkers.[2] In the same year his book Thinking, Fast and Slow, which summarizes much of his research, was published and became a best seller.[3] In 2015, The Economist listed him as the seventh most influential economist in the world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Kahneman

Ash Maurya: Reorder your Chain of Beliefs with a leaner Lean Canvas. The real challenge isn’t idea generation, but idea validation....at the earliest stages, however, it helps to more narrowly focus attention on just the two outer boxes of the canvas: Customer segment and Problem. (Customer Discovery) (more)

Ash Maurya: How to Systematically Uncover Big Problems Worth Solving. Fifteen years ago, if you had asked people to rank their top problems with taxis, they would have said rude drivers and dirty taxis. This would have led to a driver train- ing program or a cleaning service, not ridesharing services. (startup idea generation) (more)

Ash Maurya: Moving beyond MVP. After 14 years, I'm abandoning the MVP. Because definitions matter. (more)

Ash Maurya: Don't Create a Product Roadmap. Use a Traction Roadmap Instead. Entrepreneurs need to be able to simultaneously pitch a big long-term vision while staying grounded in short-term actions to move their vision forward. (more)
