Abstract

The present study aimed to identify the impact of applying the blue ocean strategy on the achievement of a competitive advantage in the Jordanian telecommunication companies. In order to achieve the study’s objectives, the descriptive analytical approach was adopted and a questionnaire was developed. After that, the questionnaire forms were distributed to the selected sample. The sample consists of one hundred (100) administrators working in Jordanian telecommunication companies. The researchers used descriptive statistical methods, as well as, linear regression analysis, that were done to test the study’s hypotheses and analyze the collected data. Several results were concluded. For instance, it was concluded that the blue ocean strategy dimensions are highly applied. It was also found that the elimination process significantly affects the achievement of a competitive advantage. It was also found that the reduction process significantly affects the achievement of a competitive advantage. In addition, it was found that the increasing process significantly affects the achievement of a competitive advantage. It was found that the innovation process significantly affects the achievement of a competitive advantage. In the light of the aforementioned results, several recommendations were suggested by the researchers. For instance, the researchers recommend providing customers with service guarantees by the Jordanian telecommunication companies. In addition, the researchers recommend overcoming the obstacles that hinder the application of the blue ocean strategy by the senior management. The researchers recommend utilizing the blue ocean strategy by companies and avoiding negative competition. The researchers also recommend making significant strategic changes in an ongoing manner. Such changes should be provided with support by the board of directors.
