  • Startups in the past There was a need for new products since we lived in a world of scarcity.
  • The times they are a-changin’ Today, we live in a world of too- much of everything. We have everything 100 times.
  • A recipe for successful entrepreneurs Follow the recipe and you will be successful! ��� Your success is guaranteed! Guaranteed!
  • Sorry. There is no easy recipe. Good entrepreneurs but the customer in the middle of their thoughts and the value they create for customers.. Give Meaning to customer is the core to any good business
  • The reality: Nobody is waiting for you! We have too much of everything. We have too much choice! We get bombarded by ads and PR!
  • 500,000,000 182,500,000,000 How do you get heard in this noise of information? Tweets per day Tweets per year
  • Why should I listen to you? Why should I engage with you? Do you have something relevant to say?
  • We have too much of everything. Be relevant for your customers, also in the long run! 1

  • …was the partner of choice for Apple to enter the digital camera market…
  • …invented an app so you can seamlessly print your pictures…
  • ..so you can easily hold your pictures in your hand.
  • With digital printing, your pictures can be printed on anything.
  • Even prints of the size of 45m x 64m are possible…
  • Is Kodak innovative? What were the tacit assumptions behind Kodak’s innovations? Take 5 min and discuss it with your neighbors.
  • Kodak was highly innovative, but did not understand that digital is more than product innovation
  • Digital was not about the best quality that the traditional customers of Kodak loved
  • From keeping to sharing memories – Digital solves new jobs for customers
  • Customers discovered new uses, no sane person would have ever thought off
  • Too bad for Kodak that now even professional photographers love the quality of digital
  • A good product is not enough Bringing innovation to the market is not enough. Finding a business model your customers love is the real challenge 2
  • How many colors does a rainbow have?
  • A rainbow has eternal colors, but we reduce complexity and draw a rainbow with 5 or 6 colors
  • Depending from what background you have, you interpret the same information differently
  • You can’t read it? Look from far away. See it now?
  • What is reality? You can shape your and your customers reality.
  • There is no reality in human systems We see the world through our eyes and interpret reality 3
  • What was one of the most successful aid programs for the developing world?* *Actually, it has nothing to do with governmental aid or NGOs.

  • 1 device
  • Really good ideas defy the accepted rules of an industry. Rethink from the customer perspective the business 5
  • Innovation is all about being different
  • But if everybody is doing he same, you have to find something else
  • The best is if your customers love your innovation due to your fantastic value proposition and and your ability to deliver what you promise
  • Where is your wow? Why should your business exist from a customer perspective?
  • Being just a bit better is not enough. You must have a clear and noticable unique- ness and magic. That’s your WOW! 6
  • Customer job to be done We have to learn to unlearn. We have to learn to see beyond the product and understand what the customer really wants. Customer needs are to imprecise. Let’s talk about jobs-to-be-done. Ready to unlearn?
  • Do we need trucks and truck drivers?
  • We need to move goods around. Human driven trucks are just one mean to do this.
  • Do we need accountants?
  • Actually, accountants are just one mean to get our books done, manage cash or get expenses ready for taxes.
  • Do we need taxis?
  • People want to move easily and with convenience in cities. Taxis are just one mean to do it.
  • Do we need hotels?
  • Do we just need a bed like at Formule 1?
  • Or do we need a place with lovely people in order to connect to the place like at AirBnB?
  • Customer job to be done We do not need a hotel. We need an accommodation plus extras like connecting to people. That are the jobs-to- be-done. Customers hire a product or service to get a job done. The products are a means to an end, not an end in themselves. The value proposition creates the value for the customer, not the product!
  • Value Proposition The job-to-get-done is solution neutral. The job is to provide accommodation plus extra benefits like connecting to people. Potential solution: §  3* hotel §  Formule 1 Hotel §  AirBnB (accommodation plus connection to people) §  friend that lives in the city It is of uttermost importance to understand the core job we solve for our customers
  • Start dreaming from badly solved jobs-to-be done of your customers. Use technology. Innovate your business model 7
  • Dr. Patrick Stähler | 68 Do you know this man? Hans Rausing = Inventor of the Tetra Pack Systems
  • He could have sold his packaging machines, ��� but…
  • But he sold packaged services Tetra Pack is not a product innovation but an implementation of an innovative business model
  • product/technology value creates X business strategy enables defines business model Technology or a new produt does not create value. It is the business model
  • Beyond product innovation Your business model is decisive for value creation, not new technology 8
