At the heart of disruptive innovation, jobs-to-be-done and Product Market fit is understanding the core motivations of the buyer. After years of research, I can state that every job has a functional and psychological dimension that can be quantified and predicted. It can also be mapped back to a predicted total addressable audience and a media plan that is a fraction of the cost of the old ways of doing things.
