The "Jobs to be Done" framework, developed by famed Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen (The Innovators Dilemma), has been used by countless organizations - including GoKart Labs - to identify disruptive growth opportunities in a variety of industries. It is an especially powerful tool for winning in the very challenging educational technology market.

In this facilitated Q&A, we'll briefly introduce the Jobs To Be Done framework and spend the bulk of the time discussing best practices that Don Smithmier and Matt Johnson (GoKart Labs) have used to it help education organizations tap unmet potential. DeLonn Crosby (EduCharacter) - who has spent years applying the JTBD framework across a variety of industries - will guide the conversation with input from the audience.
