Visionary Leadership and Blue Ocean Strategy

I think Blue Ocean Strategy (BOS) success merely depends on the leadership of the leader and how visionary the leader is, and how far ahead the business is seen/predicted.

The process of achieving the strategic vision will generate and execute the blue ocean strategy involuntary.

I think it is all about being visionary and setting the vision changing the world.
