Blue ocean strategy®

Every business as part of its corporate governance needs to properly consider strategy. All too often the focus on short-term business objectives dominate the corporate agenda.

If strategy is considered at all, it typically follows the traditional "Red Ocean" route of developing improved products +/or services for existing customers.

As markets mature this approach translates into a bloody fight with direct competitors in a shrinking marketplace -> hence the term "Red" Ocean".

Blue Ocean Strategy®

Blue Ocean Strategy® is the simultaneous pursuit of differentiation + low cost to open up unchartered market space [where no direct competitors exist] created by the newly generated demand.
