Winning by Not Competing! This International Bestseller upends traditional thinking with principles and tools to make the competition irrelevant.
In a new audiobook that challenges everything you thought you knew, W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne assert that tomorrow's leading companies will succeed, not by battling their rivals for market share in the bloody "red ocean" of a shrinking profit pool, but by creating "blue oceans" of untapped new market spaces ripe for growth.
Based on a study of 150 strategic moves, spanning more than a hundred years and thirty industries they provide a systematic approach that every company can use to render rivals obsolete and unleash new demand:
- Reconstruct market boundaries
- Focus on the big picture
- Reach beyond existing demand
- Get the strategic sequence right
- Overcome organizational hurdles
- Build execution into strategy

Kim and Mauborgne co-founded the Blue Ocean Strategy Network (BOSN), a global community of practice on the Blue Ocean Strategy family of concepts that they created. BOSN embraces academics, consultants, executives, and government officers. Mauborgne is also a board member of the Value Innovation Action Tank (VIAT), a non-profit organization, which has 15 Singapore government ministries and agencies as founding partners. VIAT was established in March 2004 to bring Value Innovation to the country's private, public and people sectors. The Times (London) said, "the ultimate centre of excellence is one which does not cost the business school any money, but which positions its faculty as leaders in its field, creator of practical ideas, and direct influencer of governments. In this, Singapore's Value Innovation Action Tank (VIAT) is probably the benchmark. VIAT aims to convert Kim and Mauborgne's ideas into reality by using a variety of frameworks, processes, tools and educational programmes."
