Q&A: What do you mean by the value network?

30 نوفمبر

A: A value network is a business analysis perspective that describes social and technical resources within and between businesses. The nodes in a value network represent people (or roles). The nodes are connected by interactions that represent tangible and intangible deliverables. These deliverables take the form of knowledge or other intangibles and/or financial value. Value networks exhibit interdependence. They account for the overall worth of products and services. Companies have both internal and external value networks.[1]

Think about addressing the following questions:

o What are the steps or activities the product or services passes when developed?
o What is the value the product/service gains in each activity or step in the process?
o Who provides the value in each step?

Good resources to explain how to create a value network:
