Session overview:

Whereas many organisations’ strategic focus is on beating the competition in their existing markets, the most successful move beyond their traditional boundaries is to discover new untapped demand. Often, they quickly establish almost monopoly-like power in these new mass markets. Their innovations simultaneously create a leap in value for their buyers and a reduction in costs…..Creating blue oceans avoids the red ocean of competition, differentiation and rising costs. It reduces costs and appeals to non-customers, delivering growth and profit.
