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.

James was very helpful. He called back on the same day and was able to provide valuable information needed urgently. He has taken the time to explain the matter in details on several occasions over the phone and investigate the matter further on my behalf; this without costs. I would highly recommend him and will definitely use him if I need a lawyer in the future.

Upon reviewing the Defamation Lawsuit Wizard, I must say that the automation at Blue Ocean is both legally insightful and technically smooth... I particularly like the detailed legal aspects (e.g., claim elements and limitation period logic, etc.) you have incorporated 👍🏽
