Blue Ocean Strategy Disadvantages

While most of the participants in this forum are quick to point out the first mover advantage that a BOS creator gets, we need to be aware of the cost in case the strategy flops. Given today's global economic conditions and aversion of companies towards cost & risk, can BOS still be a valid business strategy?

Risk of Being in Business

Risk is always present in any business. The benefits one gets out of being "first mover" will really compensate the cost. Even a company that is not willing to take risk and stay in the red ocean is always at risk of being overwhelmed by competition. It's a matter of choice in the end. And of reducing the risk at every point and keeping your eyes wide open.
