The book Blue Ocean Strategy was a global sensation and considered the most influential leadership concept of the new millennium. Published in 2005, it has sold over 3.6 million copies and has been translated into 44 languages. I had the pleasure of contributing a case study to the book and being one of the core, original team members behind the movement it created. So it’s with great anticipation that I await the publication of the sequel, Blue Ocean Shift.
Among my favorite, signature events are immersive ‘Re-Imagine’ dinners for small groups of VIP attendees. These 4-hour long experiential journeys combine the thrill of team cooking, round-table discussion that I facilitate on the topic of re-imagining boundaries, and a culinary indulgence reflecting the key themes of the dinner conversation. I facilitated one such event earlier this month with rousing results.
I am pleased to share that I have been invited to join the Board of Advisors for the Global Innovation Institute.
When it comes to change management and innovation strategy, companies don’t have to make the choice between jumping into something completely new or standing still. Instead, you can adopt a more gradual approach, which I call ‘3 levels of blue waters’”
There is a really exciting frontier for innovation that more and more companies are discovering. It is at the intersection of market spaces and industries, propelled by seemingly unrelated companies coming together and co-creating. In fact, I label such innovations true ‘blue oceans’, because they establish completely new market offerings.
