Break lose from traditional approaches to learning and development.
Our approach is based on the principles of Blue Ocean Strategy (2005, Kim and Mauborgne):
- Challenge common sense thinking about what we know
- Seek out alternative strategies to optimise business impact
These principles allow us to break lose from traditional approaches to learning and development, and to create fresh, new, highly impactful initiatives that help shift leaders and teams from aspiration to action to results.
New Challenges Require New Solutions
Start at the Root
Replace disempowering drivers of behaviour, such as certain beliefs and assumptions, with empowering ones that will drive new behaviours.
Keep it Real and Relevant
Expand on Existing Strengths
Leave Traditional Thinking Behind
Offer unusual sources of inspiration to make developmental experiences more rich. We remember best what touches us emotionally.
Gain Commitment for Growth
Measure and Sustain
The Power of a Global Network
The Blue Ocean Company has over 150 senior consultants, facilitators and coaches who have worked across all industry sectors. We team up to create never-before-seen solutions so that our clients get the best out of our collective expertise. Our Senior Associates are supported by an agile Project Management Team that works around the clock.
Creating Value Innovation
The Blue Ocean Design Canvas, used together with our six design principles, helps us to create value innovation for our clients by:
- Eliminating elements that no longer add value
- Reducing barriers to learning and development
- Raising elements to increase retention
- Creating new elements to facilitate application
This approach not only ensures high impact initiatives, but also addresses various L&D issues, such as engaging participants’ managers in the development process.
