Blue Ocean Strategy Shift

The Business Issue

  • Despite the huge amount of money invested in leadership programs, most executives fail to engage their employees
  • Gallup’s recent “State of the workplace” survey reports that only 30% of employees are really engaged

The Management Idea

  • Over the past 10 years our Faculty Partners, Professors Chan Kim and Renèe Mauborgne at INSEAD, have interviewed hundreds of people in organizations to understand where leadership is falling short and how it could be transformed
  • Blue Ocean Leadership applies to leadership the same logic Blue Ocean Strategy uses for strategic innovation. In essence, leadership can be thought of as a product/service that people in an organization “buy” or “don’t buy”
  • The “Leadership Canvas” can orient business leaders to build an innovation friendly and entrepreneur-oriented organization
  • Eliminate/reduce negative behaviors/actions and create new actions that will encourage and enable employees to “buy” your leadership

The Results

  • By unlocking the full potential of the organization, people can significantly improve company performance
  • Engaged employees have a positive impact on customer ratings, on profitability, on productivity and on the reduction of absenteeism

Blue Ocean Shift Workshop

The Blue Ocean Shift workshop is the first but vital step to shift the business towards a Blue Ocean. The workshop will educate the management on the challenges of the commoditization trap and how the Blue Ocean Strategy approach can generate profitable growth, escaping the “head-to-head” competition. Further, the workshop aims to apply immediately the learning on the business of our clients and generate initial hypotheses and ideas to be further refined, tested and implemented after the session.
