The Rock.Paper.Scissors newsletter is out: Value Innovation via Blue Ocean Strategy

Blue Ocean Strategy book

This month’s Rock.Paper.Scissors e-newsletter focuses on Value Innovation (e.g. how to create something valuable and innovative)  I learned from reading the book Blue Ocean Strategy.  Missed the article?  Check it out. (Not on my monthly e-newsletter mailing list?  Sign up for free here.)

I’m writing this from New York City – a great source of inspiration for innovation.  Want to know how to create value innovation – a.k.a. something both useful and innovative?  Check out my presentation for the Nairobi Learning & Development roundtable I facilitated on  Blue Ocean Strategy- How to Create Uncontested Market Space & Make the Competition Irrelevant.
I inhaled this book by Harvard profs W. Chan Kim & Renee Mauborgne.  It’s full of fabulous case studies & easy to follow instructions.

Whether you’re from the corporate, NGO or other sector looking to create value & innovation for a process, a product, a service or you’re simply curious, you’ll find something applicable. Download the presentation here (1 slide/pg). Or the shorter version 3 slides/pg.

The Four Actions Framework & the Six Paths Framework are waaaay more interesting & practical than their rather clunky names.  I’ve summarized them in the presentation & provided lots of examples from the book.  Let me know if & how you use them.
Watch for my next post where I’ll share some other resources (serious & tongue in cheek) related to value innovation.
