Blue Ocean Strategy:

Value Innovation & Campus Ministry Growth

slide2

Red Ocean: A set of conditions established due to a limited market, increasing competition, and set industry standards.

  • Blue Ocean: A set of conditions created or discovered where there is no competition because you are providing value innovation and attracting non-customers (e.g. non-members of our groups and/or other groups on and off campus)
  • Value Innovation: The driving force behind establishing and maintaining Blue Oceans whereby a product or service provides uncontested value in the minds of customers and non-customers (e.g. Christian and non-Christian students).

Blue Ocean Strategy:

Value Innovation & Campus Ministry Growth

slide3

Value innovation occurs when we align innovation with our purpose on campus, the utility we offer to students, and our resources.

  • EXAMPLE: By looking across the market boundary of theater, Cirque du Soleil offered new non-circus factors, such as a story line, intellectual richness, artistic music and dance, and multiple productions. These factors, entirely new creations for the circus industry, are drawn from the alternative live entertainment industry of theater. The result-they eliminated the competition of theater and the circus by making them irrelevant. They created a Blue Ocean.
  • They also reduced cost by canceling all animal acts, eliminating “star” circus performers, and cutting out many of the other costly industry standards associated with the circus. They raised the cost of the tickets, however, and charged the amount of a high-end theater show.

Buyer Value

What are our costs?

Where is value innovation for us and how can we break into a Blue Ocean condition for campus ministry?

Who are our buyers?

A strategy canvas is a visual tool which maps the level of commitment/identification with certain “industry” standards which are believed to define success for that industry.

Four Action Framework: Example Saturation Evangelism

  • The dependency on one monolithic outreach gathering.
  • The dependency on pricy artists/speakers.
  • Attractional elements that are consumerist in nature.
  • Gimmicky/self-focused messages
  • Gospel-centric evangelistic preaching.
  • Commitment to Kingdom values and social action in an evangelistic context.
  • Partnerships with non-Christian organizations.
  • Multiple team/multiple mode approach to tap into focused/niche student markets.
slide13

A Decision to Reach More for Christ

  • Value Innovation:
  • Focus
  • Divergence
  • Compelling Tagline
  • Does our ministry have focus?
  • Have we differentiated ourselves from other ministry offerings?
  • Do we have a compelling tagline and who does it appeal to?

Reduce

What can you reduce to focus on reaching more for Christ?

Create

What can you create for the purpose of reaching more for Christ?

Eliminate

What can you raise for the purpose of reaching more for Christ?

We should be willing to do everything short of sin to reach lost people for Christ!

Raise

What can you raise for the purpose of reaching more for Christ?

slide14

FOCUS/DIVERGENCE/TAGLINE

  • Focus: When we lack focus, our ministry model will be complex and difficult to execute.
  • Divergence: When we lack divergence, our ministry will be a “me-too” model, offering no reason to attract Christians or non-Christians.
  • Compelling Tagline: When we lack a compelling tagline, our ministry will be internally driven or be driven by innovation for innovation’s sake with little or no market value or brand recognition.
slide15

Reconstruct Ministry Boundaries by:

    • Looking Across Alternative Industries: What can we learn and import from non-ministry and non-para-church ministries to reconstruct what campus ministry looks like?
    • Look Across Strategic Groups Within Industries: What can we learn from those who are leading in a variety of industries? What can we learn not only from Willow Creek, Campus Crusade, and Joel Osteen but from Starbucks, Google, Wachovia, and Pulte?

Four Principles of Developing a Blue Ocean Strategy: #1

slide16

Reconstruct Ministry Boundaries by:

    • Look Across the Chain of Students: On too many campuses, church and para-church groups converge around a common definition of who our target is.
      • Many times, it is either assumed who the target is or no thought is given at all making the target everyone.
      • This keeps us from focusing our efforts and dilutes our ability to reach anyone.
    • Look Across Complementary Product/Service Offerings: How does the classroom, the fraternity, or the student center entertainment offerings relate to what we are trying to achieve?
slide17

Reconstruct Ministry Boundaries by:

    • Look Across Functional and Emotional Appeal to Students: What functionality do we offer to student life and what is our emotional brand associated with the things that we do and our presence on campus?
    • Look Across Time: Don’t just respond to the differing needs of student groups on campus but help to shape them over time. Redefine what the role of faith on campus should look like overall. Think about the range of needs/desires students have during their entire college career.
slide19

Focus on the Big Picture, Not the Numbers:

    • Drawing your strategy canvas for your entire campus and individually for your ministry offerings will help you visually to see:
      • The profile of all campus ministries
      • The profile of your ministry and how it compares to current offerings.
      • Which factors to invest in and which ones to eliminate or reduce

Four Principles of Developing a Blue Ocean Strategy: #2

slide20

Focus on the Big Picture, Not the Numbers:

    • Developing and communicating your strategy canvases with and to leaders will help others see the problem and the potential for solutions and a visual way.
    • Developing several potential strategy canvases will allow others to participate communally and contribute ideas in a structured and fun way.
    • After all strategy canvases are complete, have a canvas fair. Have each team or student also create a compelling tagline associated with the canvas. The tagline should be a compelling functional and emotional reason why students should want to join your group.

Eliminate

Raise

  • Focus on the Big Picture, Not the Numbers:
    • An accompanying “Four Action” grid should accompany all canvases spelling out clearly the costs associated with the strategy
slide22

Reach Beyond Existing Demand:

    • Don’t focus on existing students who are in or are likely to join campus ministries. Untapped groups may include certain ethnic groups on campus not being served, faculty/staff, non-Churched but spiritual people, artists, unconventional lifestyle adoptees (e.g. gaming community)…
    • Don’t focus on merely bringing greater service to existing students-look outward!

Second Tier

First Tier

Our Market

  • Reach Beyond Existing Demand:
    • Understand the 3 Tiers of Non-Customers:
      • First Tier: Students who are in our groups but would jump ship if the opportunity came along.These are Soon-to-Be Non-Customers
      • Second Tier: Students who consciously choose against involvement in our campus ministry or campus ministry in general: These are Refusing Non-Customers.
slide24

Third Tier

Second Tier

First Tier

Our Market

  • Reach Beyond Existing Demand:
    • Understand the 3 Tiers of Non-Customers:
      • Third Tier: These are students who are in demographics distant from campus ministry.They are usually not thought of consciously by our or other campus groups and/or churches. These are Unexplored Non-Customers
slide25

Reach Beyond Existing Demand:

    • Start with thinking about the Biggest Group of Un-reached Students

Value to Students

Adoption

Price

Cost

Is your target audience able and willing to pay the price to “buy-in?”

Can you execute your strategy with the resources you have?

Is there exceptional student value to your strategy?

What are the hurdles to students and can you overcome them?
