Blue Ocean Strategy Dictionary 2. Visual Exploration During Visual Exploration, teams of managers go out into the field to explore the Six Paths Framework gathering noncustomer insights. Here they are looking to observe the distinct differences of alternative products and services to see which factors should be eliminated, reduced, raised, or created in the company’s offerings. 3. Visual Strategy Fair The penultimate step is the Visual Strategy Fair. Here teams begin to draw their “to be” strategy canvases based on insights from the Visual Awakening and Visual Exploration stages. The strategy fair invites senior corporate executives, external constituencies—the kinds of people met during the teamsʼ field work, including noncustomers and customers of competitors. The objective is for each team to present their various alternative strategy canvases and gain feedback to build the best possible “to be” future strategy canvas. 4.
