You just had what you thought to be a great idea, but the reality is less than one idea in a million is actually worth anything. Fewer than that are worth a lot. Why? To start, most ideas are generated in markets that are not worthy of investment – they are either too small or not under-served. But more importantly, most ideas address one or two customer needs, not dozens, and therefore fail to provide customers with significant new value. When customers cannot find solutions that help them get a job done significantly better, they simply continue to buy the products and services they are used to using.

In this webinar, Tony Ulwick, the author of “What Customers Want” and founder of Strategyn, will provide you with more insight into why most ideas are worth nothing and a framework for overcoming this challenge. These insights will be useful for any organization who is trying to accelerate its growth through innovation.

What you will learn:
‘ Why most ideas don’t succeed in the marketplace
‘ A customer-centric framework for creating ideas that customers will embrace
‘ A method for creating a growth plan that will accelerate your company’s growth

Who will benefit from this webinar:
Executives who need to accelerate their growth and have not achieved their growth goals.

Complimentary Webinar: Silencing the Voice of the Customer (VOC): New research methods to create breakthrough products and services

In association with Strategyn, The Institute for International Research invites you to join us for a one hour complimentary Web Seminar.

Silencing the Voice of the Customer (VOC): Focus on the “job-to-be-done” and create breakthrough products and services

Over the past 30 years, innovation experts have led companies to believe that it is impossible to know all their customers’ needs. They contend that customers can’t articulate their needs, and that customers have latent needs – or needs they don’t know they have. What if it turns out that this thinking is wrong?

There is a new way of approaching your customer needs but it’s not with the Voice of the Customer. Over the past 20 years Strategyn has created and refined an innovation process called Outcome-Driven Innovation?? (ODI) that invalidates this old thinking. In addition, a ten-year track record study reveals that when the world’s most respected companies silence the voice of the customer and gather the right inputs for the innovation process, they experience an 86 percent success rate. This is a complete turn-around in the innovation industry.

In this webinar, Strategyn founder and CEO, Tony Ulwick will demonstrate how thinking about innovation and customer needs from a “jobs-to-be-done” perspective enables companies to create winning growth strategies and breakthrough products and services.

What you will learn:

* The shortcomings of listening to the “voice-of-the-customer”
* How to define a market from the customer’s perspective
* How to create a growth strategy using the right customer inputs
* How to organize the innovation process around the right customer insights
