Blue Ocean Strategy


“Competition should not occupy the centre of strategic thinking. Too many companies let competition drive their strategies. What blue ocean strategy brings to life, however, is that this focus on the competition all too often keeps companies anchored in the red ocean. It puts the competition, not the customer at the core of strategy.”


SUMMARY: The book challenges traditional competitive strategy – and replaces it with “value innovation,” showing leaders and entrepreneurs how to set up a smart strategy that creates new market spaces.


TAKEAWAYS:

3. You will learn how to build your blue ocean strategy through a system of proven principles proven by extensive case study research.
