BOS brings barriers to imitation.

How to achieve a maximum result?
A quick refresher
: Existing market has advantages, but has lots of competition.

: Although lacks of competition, new market needs a long time to make innovation.

1. Run into the Red Ocean, in order to get more consumers and capitals. Also, strength the position in the existing market.

2. Because firm gained enough resources and capitals, they can then run into Blue Ocean. They have resources to make innovation.
