BOS = Niche Market Strategy

Is BOS not just another phrase for a niche market strategy? They share the common feature of a 'lone player'.

Tactic versus Methodology

Oscar, I have to say I disagree with you, for at least 2 reasons.
1. Firstly BOS is not about creating niches. The professors always say BOS is not about small incremental or niche changes but about major changes. So although you can certainly apply it to a niche market, BOS is definitely not just a niche approach.
2. Secondly, niche marketing is really just a single tactic in the strategists kitbag, while BOS is a complete methodology that you use to not only formulate the strategy but also validate and execute.
Sorry to disagree but I think niche marketing is an incremental tactic while BOS is a methodology creating major change.
