Blue Ocean StrategyHow to Create Uncontested Market Space and Make Competition Irrelevant… what a great subtitle! What business owner would not want to know how to remove marketplace competition? Even if you only are introduced to the concept of a “Blue Ocean”, this book would prove to be well worth the read.

Most of us “business owners” operate in spaces that are crowded… filled with competitors. On the surface, the Blue Ocean Strategy focuses on creating a new product or service which is new and/or innovations so great that the business finds itself in a position of not having any competition – from what I understand.

Be encouraged… if, like me, you are not sure that you will be able to create a Blue Ocean through creating a entire new or innovations of the current product/service you offer – consider the strategy of improving the way in-which you deliver those products or services. By increasing the level of customer satisfaction you are able to deliver, you may find / make your own Blue Ocean. Good Luck!

Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne argue that lasting success comes from creating ‘blue oceans’: untapped new market spaces ripe from growth.
