Default Proper Bounding Box Jump technique?

I have seen numerous videos shows bounding box jumps, for those who are unfamiliar these are the " rabbit jumps" seen in various crossfit videos. It appears that these are done most efficiently by allowing slight knee flexion ( similar to a jerk dip) upon landing and then extending the knees to go vertical.

My questions are:
1)What is the proper technique for these? Is it by using the jerk dip as I mentioned?

2) Programming:
A- How would one program these? Assuming one is using the Jerk Dip technique,Are these a movement that would respond well a combination of explosive jerk dips and direct practice?

B-Are these of any benefit to anyone besides those looking to compete in crossfit?
