StratX ExL uses the Blue Ocean Strategy as backbone in its strategic innovation initiatives. While innovation is sometimes seen as a random/experimental process where entrepreneurs and spin-offs are the primary drivers, Blue Ocean Strategy offers systematic and reproducible methodologies and processes in pursuit of innovation by both new and existing firms.

Strategic agility

The greatest strength of the Blue Ocean Strategy approach lies in its power to transform mindsets, to truly inspire leaders to see that that innovation is not only desirable but possible.

Innovation-2

Innovation is, or certainly should be, at the heart of every company’s strategic priorities. These priorities may be phrased in different ways such as ‘growth’, ‘transformation’, ‘becoming more agile’, ‘creating new solutions’.. but innovation is essentially what is needed.
