044: Ask Andi series—3 Companies That Saw A Blue Ocean Possibility

Posted by Andrea Simon on Dec 1, 2017 6:00:00 AM

 Listen now to my podcast about seeing the opportunities that all around you! 

I get so excited when I get questions from the field from folks who want to know what we do as anthropologists and what is this Blue Ocean Strategy® stuff and how we help companies change, because that's what we do. We're corporate anthropologists and we work with organizations that need or want to change. (And I can tell you, by and large, they don't want to change.) To illustrate, I share three stories of clients of ours who, after one of our change workshops, all had wonderful "a-ha" moments where they were able to see something that was right in front of them and make changes to take their businesses to new heights. Listen in!

It's exciting stuff because, as you will hear in our conversation, anthropology and ethnography (observational research) are slowly but surely moving out of their academic silos into the world around us. Listen in and hear why Jay and I are both on a mission to make this sometimes "stuffy thing" called anthropology much more accessible. Enjoy!
