Creating Blue Oceans Chapter 9: Align Value, Profit, and People Propositions Team 2: Garrett Blevins, Ryan Pollard, Devin McBryde, Devin Roberson Three Strategy Propositions A Blue Ocean Strategies success hinges on the Development and Alignment of Three Strategy Propositions: 1. Value Proposition: Developing an offering that attracts buyers. 2. Profit Proposition: Creating a business model that enables the company to make money based on the value proposition (offering).

3. People Proposition: Motivating the people who work for or with the company to execute this strategy. A Breakdown of Strategy The three strategy propositions correspond to the traditional activity system of an organization: Outputs of an organizations activities are value for the buyer and revenue for itself. (Value and Profit propositions) Inputs of an organizations activities are cost to produce them and people to deliver them. (People proposition)

Note: A strategy must fully develop and align the Three Strategy Propositions. Holistic Understanding of Strategy Holistic Approach: The entire organization is considered in its processes, opposed to having weak areas and strong areas. Distinct People Propositions: Sometimes it is necessary to address more than one group of stakeholders. Ex: Supply Chain Partner and Employees Distinct Value Propositions: Ex: Business-to-business

May need two value propositions: one for the business customer and one for the business customers customers. Alignment Around the Strategy Propositions Red Ocean Strategy: The alignment of the three strategy propositions in pursuit of Either differentiation Or low cost. Blue Ocean Strategy: The alignment of the three strategy propositions in pursuit of Both differentiation And low cost. Achieving Blue Ocean Strategic AlignmentComic Relief

Comic Relief: UK fund-raising charity that was founded in 1985. One of the most distinctive charities in the UK that also enjoys the lowest costs. While UK charities get, on average, 45 percent of their funds from the public, Comic Relief has raised 100 percent of its donations directly from the public with no paid marketing. Key factors from one proposition often support and reinforce the other two propositions. The Value Proposition Comic Relief

Propositions with the supply chain Proposition for their customers When a Strategy Is Not Properly Aligned Tata Nano: Known as the Peoples car and got more media attention than any other car launch in the world at the time.

Putting it all together Napster & Apple iTunes Both seeked to create and capture uncontested market space with digital music. Napster Advantage of being the first mover Pulled in 80 million users because of value proposition Ultimately failed

iTunes Grew the blue ocean Achieved sustainable success Alignment of the two different strategies is what dictated success or failure Putting it all together Napster Lacked a holistic view of strategy A revenue -sharing model for digital download was not taken seriously Never understood the need for external people proposition that offered low cost to record labels

Took a belligerent approach Later shut down due to copyright infringement Success was short-lived because strategy alignment was ignored Putting it all together Apple iTunes Created a set of developed and aligned strategy propositions The value proposition for buyers and a people proposition for external partners set a path for long term success A deal was set in place for the music companies to receive 70 percent of the purchase price of every song downloaded

The alignment of Apples value, profit, and people propositions in a new era of music, allowed them to create, capture and dominate a new market Questions?
