"We have to create uncontested market space and make competition irrelevant. We can do this our way. The Asian way. Why must we follow the Westerners? Theirs (methods) may not fit in into our culture and environment. This has been done. Look at Korea. Look at Samsung." - Quotation by Professor W. Chan Kim, the Co-Author of Blue Ocean Strategy.
Not long after that, during the turn of the millennium, Year 2000, the Chinese joined the boat using a Red again. They embarked on a cost war on almost everything especially on outsourcing centres that were widely used by many corporations across the globe. Chinese were doing everything cheaper than everyone else in the world. In 2010's, the Americans reacted yet again with another wave of a Blue by introducing the mighty pervasive social media and internet-based economy.
POLICE: Police force to stop doing administrative work. The civil service personnel have been reallocated to manage all administrative work. The police can now concentrate on going out to catch criminals and to ensure public security.
PRISONS: Why building more prisons to accomodate the ever growing population of convicts? This costs money. Instead, they (convicts) are now accomodated in military camps and are asked to work on agriculture land or fresh water fish ponds producing products for the good of society.
URBAN TRANSFORMATION CENTRES (UTC) now operates from 8am to 10pm daily requiring the civil service workforce to accept a 2 work shifts schedule. This is done not by additional staff but by existing staff via rescheduling work scopes. Many civil service related transactions can be done at UTC such as processing passports, immigration matters and many other transactions usually done by more than 50 agencies. There are 8 UTCs now.RURAL TRANSFORMATION CENTRES (RTC) is the same as UTC but for rural area matters such as agriculture products and services facilitation. RTC will supply products to the UTCs for supply push channel for the demand that is waiting at UTCs.ENTREPRENEURSHIP: Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre (MaGIC) was introduced in 2014 as a one stop centre for services facilitating entrepreneurs to build their companies. This includes funders, registrars and many other business facilities necessary for ease of business. They even have work spaces to incubate new companies. In the United States of America, Silicon Valley was pushed by the private sectors; but for Malaysia, Government will do it via MaGIC.There are more examples in the book National Blue Ocean Strategy Initiatives published by the Office of the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
