Guide and Best Practices

A Value Chain is a strategic analytical and decision-support tool that highlights the bases where businesses can create value for their customers and optimize the value creation process.

Steps to analyse value chain models effectively

  • Identify the scope of the analysis, if it’s the entire organization or a subset of process(es) / product(s)
  • Identify activities inside for the given scope, plot these on a value chain model diagram in Creately
  • Invite others who are relevant to this, to collaborate and contribute to the model.
  • Identify value that’s created by each activity. Identify value factors in each activity. Use icons/colors/comments or markers to indicate value factors for each activity.
  • Identify what you would like to change in each activity. You can use comments or other sets of shapes to keep track of these visually.
  • Identify priorities for the changes you want to make. Pick the easy wins first to increase customer value.
  • Include the drawn model in another value chain analysis document with your notes or use the Creately Value Chain Analysis model as the working document while you collaborate with others to implement the plan.
  • Embed a live updating diagram of the Creately value chain model in your intranet or other internal website using the Creately Viewer so everyone can easily track the progress.
