Business Speaker and Networking Event: FREE-OF-CHARGE
One Ninety One Club (Atlanta, GA)
Wednesday, May 18th
8:00 am to 10:00 am
The Graduates Club, a nationwide business learning and networking organization, cordially invites you to a morning of networking and discussion featuring a presentation by W. Chan Kim, Professor of Strategy and International Management at INSEAD. In his presentation based on his new book Blue Ocean Strategy, which he co-authored with Renee Mauborgne, Kim will challenge everything you thought you knew about the requirements for strategic success. Since the dawn of the industrial age, companies have engaged in head-to-head competition in search of sustained, profitable growth. They have fought for competitive advantage, battled over market share, and struggled for differentiation. Yet these hallmarks of competitive strategy are not the way to creat e profitable growth in the future. Dr. Kim will argue that cutthroat competition results in nothing but a bloody red ocean of rivals fighting over a shrinking profit pool. Based on a study of 150 strategic moves spanning more than a hundred years and thirty industries, he explains that lasting success comes not from battling competitors, but from creating "blue oceans": untapped new market spaces ripe for growth. Such strategic moves- called "value innovation"- create powerful leaps in value that often render rivals obsolete for more than a decade. Dr. Kim will explore a systematic approach to making the competition irrelevant and outline principles and tools any company can use to create and capture blue oceans - and chart a bold new path to winning the future.


W. Chan Kim is the Boston Consulting Group Bruce D. Henderson Chair Professor of Strategy and International Management at INSEAD. He is a contributor to The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Wall Street Journal Europe, The Asian Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, World Link, South China Morning Post, and others.
