         Mauborgne”. According to the book
                                    THE BLUE OCEAN STRATEGY
                      “Is a way to make the competition irrelevant by creating
                      a leap in value for both the company and its customers”

1.1.2. Red Ocean
        The writers define the market universe into Red ocean and Blue Ocean and Red ocean
         represents the Known
                                 Red Ocean      =       The Known
        In Red Ocean the Company’s Market and industry that exist today.
        Red ocean represents the defined and acceptable limitation and the comparative naturally
         faster as they proceed to limited resources that means the competition is within existing
         market space and focusing on existing customers. This creates a corporate war, tends the
         water bloody, hence determine the red ocean.

1.1.3. Blue Ocean
        Blue ocean represents the unknown
                                      Blue ocean = The Unknown
        In blue ocean the company’s market and industry not in existence.
        Within a blue ocean unlimited opportunities to create new markets and new demands that
         awakes discovery. Because of the vast potential opportunities in blue ocean that makes the
         competition irreverent and focuses on non customers.
        Blue ocean strategy contrasts sparking with red ocean strategy and that seeks to escape
         from accepted market boundaries to create new market and reducing the competition
        Value innovation is the core concept of the blue ocean strategy by ignoring the competition
         and focusing the strategic thinking on the buyer in leap in the value results for both the
         company and its customers. Adopting this approach increasing the company’s chance of
         surviving and growth increasingly credit and shrinking market spaces.
