Recognized as one of the most iconic and impactful strategy books ever written, Blue Ocean Strategy argues that cutthroat competition results in nothing but a bloody red ocean of rivals fighting over a shrinking profit pool.
Based on a study of 150 strategic moves, spanning more than 100 years across 30 industries, the authors, Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne show that lasting success comes not from battling competitors but from creating “blue oceans” — untapped new market spaces ripe for growth.
Embraced by organizations and industries worldwide, Blue Ocean Strategy is a global phenomenon that has sold over 3.6 million copies, is published in a record-breaking 46 languages and is a bestseller across five continents. First published in 2005, it was updated and expanded with fresh content in 2015.
Blue Ocean Strategy presents a systematic approach to making the competition irrelevant and capture their own blue oceans.
