Workshop for on “Blue Ocean Strategy” for BBA and BCA students

I.T.S School of Management, Ghaziabad organized a workshop on “Blue Ocean Strategy” for the final year students of BBA and BCA courses on Thursday, 06th April, 2023.

 

The resource person of the workshop is Dr. V. N. Bajpai, Professor and Director , Institute of Technology & Science, Ghaziabad.

The rapid pace of innovation and change in recent years has led scholars and executives to search for an approach to strategy that is more dynamic than Harvard Professor Michael Porter’s classic “five forces.” One of the most successful efforts to do so is “Blue Ocean Strategy,” developed by W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne.

Dr Bajpai shared Blue ocean strategy as the simultaneous pursuit of differentiation and low cost to open up a new market space and create new demand. It is about creating and capturing uncontested market space, thereby making the competition irrelevant. He focused on the concepts of Value innovation and technological innovation and explained the ways of creating new demand and attracting non customers. He shared that Value innovation is created in the region where a company’s actions favorably affect both its cost structure and its value proposition to buyers.  Cost savings are made by eliminating and reducing the factors an industry competes on.  Buyer value is lifted by raising and creating elements the industry has never offered.  Over time, costs are reduced further as scale economies kick in due to the high sales volumes that superior value generates.

He discussed cases of Godrej ‘Chotookool’ in the refrigerator industry and McDonalds in restaurant as a successful innovation model. It was a great learning experience for students and faculty present.

 Workshop was coordinated by Dr. Vivek Pachauri
