Book 4: Blue Ocean Strategy by RenΓ©e Mauborgne and W. Chan Kim

βœ… Big idea of the book:

Imagine you’re a fish, swimming in a big, crowded, and competitive ocean. But what if you could create your own ocean, one that’s blue, peaceful, and full of delicious fish?

It’s a blueprint for companies to stop fighting in the red ocean of intense competition, and instead create their own blue ocean, where the water is clearer, the fish are tastier, and the profits are bigger.

If you’re tired of swimming with the sharks and ready to create your own ocean paradise, grab a copy of the Blue Ocean Strategy book and start making waves!

βœ… 10 Big takeaways from the book:

1) The red ocean is crowded, bloody, and full of sharks, but the blue ocean is a peaceful and profitable paradise.

2) Don’t try to beat the competition at their own game, create your own game and rules.

3) The key to success is not to lower costs, but to create unique value that captures new demand.

4) Stop looking at what your competitors are doing, and start looking at what your customers need but aren’t getting.

5) Instead of focusing on your industry, focus on your target customer and find ways to create value for them.

6) Don’t try to be the best, try to be different and unique.

7) The blue ocean strategy requires a bit of bravery, but the reward is a market space all to yourself.

8) Don’t be afraid to challenge industry norms and assumptions.

9) Creating a blue ocean is about innovation, not imitation.

10) By creating a blue ocean, you can swim in calm waters, relax, and enjoy the abundant catch of the day.

βœ… Here are 3 more tips I’ve learned from the book

  1. Focus on the big picture, not just incremental improvements. Blue ocean strategy is about creating significant change, not just making small improvements to existing products or services.
  2. Don’t be afraid to leave behind what’s not working. Sometimes, the key to creating a blue ocean is to abandon traditional thinking and practices that are no longer effective.
  3. Don’t just think about what you can offer, think about what you can take away. Sometimes, the key to creating a blue ocean is to remove features or practices that add complexity without adding value. By simplifying your offering, you can create a more compelling and efficient value proposition for your customers.
