  2. Is there anything as intellectual property rights that Strategic Partners might enforce to prevent everyone else from copying the process and lowering the profits for all?

  3. Is external pressure applied to a board through being certified as being a bad board effective in producing substantive change or does it just result in window dressing?

  4. What structural components are significant in developing the conceptual model for the identification and quantification of the competing factors in the strategy canvas?

  5. Is it cost-justified; profitable, supported by adequate and perhaps new funding sources, or necessary to achieve goals and funded by revenues/profits elsewhere?

  6. Are there critical gaps in current tools to collect data or minimize impact that impede ability to gather data or address impacts in a cost-effective manner?

  7. Is there anything as intellectual property rights that might be enforced to prevent everyone else from copying the process and lowering the profits for all?

  8. Is mandate simply to ensure that the monitoring framework is robust and consistent, or to intervene to facilitate the achievement of key goals and targets?

  9. How is Blue Ocean strategy fundamentally different from conventional competitive strategy in terms of analytical perspectives and practical implications?

  10. How can companies systematically maximize the opportunities while simultaneously minimizing the risks of formulating and executing Blue Ocean strategy?
