“A blue ocean strategy is about pursuing differentiation and low cost simultaneously. In contrast, in competitive strategy, differentiation is achieved by providing higher value at a higher cost.”

  “A blue ocean strategist does not gain insights about reconstructing market boundaries by looking at existing customers, but by exploring noncustomers.”

Blue ocean strategy: how to creat uncontested market space and make the competition irrelevant

A red ocean is the existing world of competition where companies succeed by outperforming each other. A blue ocean is an untapped market space ready for growth. Instead of fighting over existing customers, a blue ocean strategist reaches beyond existing demand. This book looks at the sequence of strategic moves needed to create value innovation, the hallmark of a blue ocean strategy. The authors quantify the impact of blue ocean strategies by analyzing the launch of over 100 companies and comparing their revenues and profits. The findings show a significant advantage accruing to the small percentage of companies who manage to exploit a blue ocean. Test your understanding of the key concepts of blue ocean strategy here.
