Identifying Your Blue Ocean ® Opportunities
A typical Innovation Insights
consulting engagement starts with a KAI assessment of a company's
or organization's strategy team. A KAI (Kirton Adaption-Innovation)
assessment provides information regarding how the team members and
the collective team solves problems. Ideally, a strategy team will
have a diversity of KAI index scores. As with other
Industrial/Organizational assessment instruments, there is not a
right or wrong KAI index score. An individual's index shows if he
or she is an Adaptive problem solver (strives to make things
better) or an Innovative problem solver (strives to make things
different). Both KAI types are needed in an effective organization.
Innovation Insights has found that KAI is a better instrument than
either Myers-Briggs or DISC in determining team effectiveness in
defining and implementing a company's or organization's
Innovation Insights provides 1, 2 and
3-day workshops for its clients to learn the tools and
methodologies that "Make Blue Ocean Strategy Work". These tools
have been developed and refined by Innovation Insights and other
members of the Value Innovation Consultancy Consortium over the
past ten years and have proven effective in assisting a variety of
companies and organizations (from Fortune 500 companies to
start-ups) develop and implement their Blue Ocean Strategy. These
workshops provide practical tools for a company to understand how
KAI impacts strategy development, its Value Chain, identify the
Most Important Customer (MIC) in the Value Chain, identify latent
needs of the MIC, identify and rank-order the latent need elements,
create Value Curves showing the organization's "As-Is" value it is
providing the MIC for each element, identify the "To-Be" value it
wishes to target for each element, and begin the steps to implement
the strategy to reach its "To-Be" Blue Ocean opportunities.
Innovation Insights will work with a company or organization
throughout the 10-step process to "Make Blue Ocean Strategy Work".
A client company has several options: Innovation Insights can take
the lead in all 10 steps, or play more of a supporting role with
the client taking the lead in all or selected steps. Once the
"As-Is" and "To-Be" value and strategic directions have been
defined, Innovation Insights can continue to play a role in the
company's or organization's implementation phase (Step 10) of their
Blue Ocean Strategy if the client desires.
