2 in the ranking (with writing partner Chan Kim) INSEAD’s Renée Mauborgne was the highest placed woman. The following is a guest piece from Thinkers50 creators Stuart Crainer and Des Dearlove. Business best practice never stands still. State of the art management and leadership techniques are continually evolving.

Toys ‘R’ Us Is Dead, but Physical Retail Isn’t

Harvard Business

Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne popularized the notion of a blue ocean strategy , which focuses on new markets, rather than fighting it out in “red oceans” filled with rabid competition. The recent bankruptcy filing at Toys “R” Us has roiled the toy industry. Yet the struggles at the company are not new. The firm was taken private in a $6.6

Announcing the First Ever Winner of the Warren Bennis Prize

Harvard Business Review

Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne; “Manage Your Work, Manage Your Life,” by Boris Groysberg and Robin Abrahams; and “21 st -Century Talent Spotting,” by Claudio Fernández-Aráoz. Warren Bennis, who died last summer, was one of the world’s most influential thinkers on the topic of leadership. In dozens of books and articles, he identified the qualities that make a brilliant leader and showed how to attain them.

Marginal Market Opportunities

Harvard Business Review

Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne of INSEAD have written a whole book about Blue Ocean Strategy as they call it, in which successful companies innovate their value propositions to attract customers who have never engaged with their type of product or service before. A classic example is the Australian Wine Yellow Tail in the USA market, a case that Kim and Mauborgne document fully in their book. Many successful innovations work because they create a new market.

You Can Win Without Differentiation

Harvard Business Review

From Michael Porter to Costas Markides and through the Blue Oceans of Kim and Mauborgne, strategy scholars have been urging executives to distinguish their firm’s offerings and carve out a unique market position. For decades, strategy gurus have been telling firms to differentiate.

The Making of an Innovation Master

Harvard Business Review

Chan Kim , and Renee Mauborgne. A workshop attendee asked me this seemingly simple question: "So, what else should I read to learn more about innovation?". It's a hard question to answer because there is so much high-quality material out there. And specific recommendations depend on the specific topic about which you are most curious. But in thinking it through, I did eventually end up with a highly personal list I call " The Masters of Innovation " (which appears in my latest book ).

Stop Trying to Engineer Success

Harvard Business Review

Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne examined the emergence of outrageously successful companies like Cirque du Soleil, and claim to have discovered the keys. Every organization that aspires to greatness has something to learn from relevant success stories of the past. But how should managers go about unlocking the lessons of those efforts? Many of their consultants advocate an engineering approach: Find multiple examples of organizations that have coped with equivalent challenges successfully.

Apple Versus the Strategy Professors

Harvard Business Review

Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne , and it certainly sounds like what Apple has been up to. Apple still has an edge, in that it built that sea — "so powerful is blue ocean strategy," Chan and Mauborgne write, "that a blue ocean strategic move can create brand equity that lasts for decades." Someday, Apple's now 11-year-long run of nearly unbroken triumph (I'm dating it to the launch of the iPod in November 2001) is going to end. That is just the way of the business world.

What Is Strategy, Again?

Harvard Business Review

In the do something new camp, then, would be found Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne’s work on finding or creating uncontested new markets, first articulated in 1999 in “ Creating New Market Space ,” and further fleshed out in 2004 in the now-classic “ Blue Ocean Strategy ,” as well Alvin Roth’s seminal 2007 work on “ The Art of Design,” and Clay Christensen, Henning Kagermann, and Mark Johnson’s “ Reinventing Your Business Model.”

Closing the Gap Between Blue Ocean Strategy and Execution

Harvard Business Review

Chan Kim Renee Mauborgne. At the highest level, there are three propositions essential to the success of strategy: the value proposition, the profit proposition, and the people proposition. For any strategy to be successful and sustainable, an organization must develop an offering that attracts buyers; it must create a business model that enables the company to make money out of its offering; and it must motivate the people working for or with the company to execute the strategy.
