This virtual meeting was a follow-up to the WWC Blue Ocean Strategy Summit, held in February 2020. The Blue Ocean Strategy, developed by Harvard researchers, is the concept that some successful businesses are creating uncontested marketspace. At the Blue Ocean Strategy Summit, we had an incredible turnout of campus and community leaders who met to discuss strategic partnerships and opportunities for the College.
At the follow-up Blue Ocean Waypoint meeting, campus leaders provided an update on the ideas we’ve moved forward and where we’re going next. Attendees met our new Vice President of Academic Affairs, Jay Roberts, who shared how input from the Summit has been incorporated into academic programming at the College. Attendees also heard about new partnerships built since February.
As our distinguished stakeholders, attendees were the first to read the Blue Ocean Strategy Summit feature in the 2020 Warren Wilson College Owl & Spade Magazine. Click here to read the article!
