Differences in BOS / ROS Cultures
Daniel Newton Obaka
I have discovered over the last five years that in Red Ocean Strategies (ROS) people compete to maintain a competitive edge over the rival companies, organizations or individuals through a number of unprofessional practices driven by a culture of GREED and the 'winner takes it all syndrome'.
