"The Blue Ocean Practical Introduction Online Course is fantastic.  Not only does it provide a deeper understanding of this strategic framework made famous by Professors W. Chan Kim's and Renee Mauborgne's two books—Blue Ocean Strategy and Blue Ocean Shift—but it also shows how easy it is to adopt many of its supporting tools—As-Is Strategy Canvas, Four Actions Framework, Six Paths Framework, 3 Tiers of Noncustomers, Buyer Utility Map, and To-Be Strategy Canvas.  This course is valuable to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of strategic thinking—from consultants to C-suite executives to board members—and wishing to discover new opportunities from a different perspective."

"As a leadership team, we read the books Blue Ocean Shift and Blue Ocean Strategy. It became immediately clear that we wanted to leverage this knowledge to get us out of the "red ocean" in some areas of our business and to continue to stay in the "blue ocean" in others. We decided to invest in running each of our business development sectors through the online course and then in developing our strategy. The course has been instrumental in providing us with a structured roadmap to get and maintain traction. We are thankful for the tools the Blue Ocean team has provided and our organization has every intention of continuing to use them!"

Catherine Vassant, Business Coach

"If you think blue ocean strategies are a fancy sort of differentiation strategies, that they are complex to understand and implement, or that they only apply to large businesses or organizations, you're not alone. That's what I was thinking before starting this course.

But think again. The actionable method you're looking for to get crystal-clear about your industry and competitors, find out who your potential customers are and what they really want, and map out a unique growth path ahead AND away from competition is in this course. Whatever your industry is.

The Blue Ocean Practical Introduction is a 10 modules online course with short impactful videos, the right amount of content to feel the progress without overwhelming, and inspiring examples. It not only walks you through the exact easy-to-use tools and the few strategic questions you need, but it also sparks a new energy to implement.

In my case (one-person business coaching activity), by the end of the course, I had the bigger half of my workbook filled with the clarity I needed about my situation and a new understanding of possibilities I felt but was unsure of or just plainly missed.

On top of that, this course gives you the confidence you need to both expand your ambition and take fast action, knowing you can always iterate as you get results. I would recommend it to any entrepreneur/business person serious about expanding her/his business with a new dynamic."
