Introduction : What is the Blue Ocean Leadership (B.O.L)

The Blue Ocean Leadership Initiative or B.O.L. was introduced to further strengthen the leadership and increase the involvement of employees in an organisation. B.O.L. is a systematic approach to strengthen leadership practices to maximize talent and existing human capital in efforts to improve the performance of the organisation.
