Teach a man to Fish
Andrew Nelson, SIG Leader
Philip - maybe I misunderstand you, but it seems to me you are placing an unrealistic expectation on the book.
Of course the book, or the method is not "a" strategy it is "a" process. But a process that is designed to assist in systematizing the development of strategy for blue oceans
The book is not a single strategy. it's like you are complaining that the Wright brothers did not show us how to fly all planes, they just showed us how to fly one plane.
