Definition from
A theory and book developed by W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne. The authors suggest that moving into markets without competition (blue oceans) can be far more advantageous than entering proven, but competitive, markets (red oceans)

Example sentence(s):
  • Backroads’ Blue Ocean Strategy appealed to a much different audience than vacationers looking to relax, and has played a major role in expanding the industry to include travelers who want to feel fulfilled and accomplished at the conclusion of a trip. ClearPoint Strategy
  • Successful implementers of Blue Ocean strategy have used practical tools to systematically “translate blue ocean thinking into commercially compelling new offerings.” Sporadic, one-off “Blue Ocean strategy” is one thing: systematically adopting Blue Ocean thinking is another. Forbes
  • By questioning conventional definitions of who can and should be the target buyer, companies can often see fundamentally new ways to unlock value. Path three of blue ocean strategy’s six paths framework pushes companies to look across the chain of buyers in their industry. By shifting focus to a previously overlooked set of buyers, companies can unlock new value and create uncontested market space. BlueOceanSystems
