Top customer reviews
Currently I work on public private partnership projects and it is refreshing to note that the expanded edition now covers an essential topic: when and how to renew blue oceans over time with emphasis on sustainability.
My favourite part about the expanded edition is that there is even more emphasis on how Blue Ocean Strategy can be applied to illuminate the human dimension of organisations, to engage people's hearts and minds in carrying out their activities. The book illustrates how to build execution into strategy and create trust among employees and other partners. I found many useful examples that other project managers can learn from, particularly in terms of how a new strategy can be implemented quickly and at low cost.
will be rolled out to replace the old Millennium development goals and they will need a very new approach as we strive to create a new Green economy for the planet. The reason Blue Ocean strategy is very relevant is because by and large the 'entire planet
and ALL its 'existing products and services' have been created with little or no attention to sustainability of resource utilization and its life cycle. This gives us an opportunity to 're-think' outside the 'red ocean trap and create new green market spaces
to replace each of them.The new Blue Oceans are Green and the tools will help us create new Green market spaces.
Overall, a very well thought out and effectively organized book containing ideas that can be applied immediately.
