2. Was Schultz's strategy a blue ocean strategy? A red ocean strategy? Elaborate on your decision.
3. What were the critical drivers of Starbucks' success?
4. What is the source of Starbucks' competitive advantage? Is it sustainable? What should the company do (or not do) next to enhance/maintain its position in the market at the time the case was written?
