Three primary steps go into performing a value chain analysis.

1. Collect information and data that relates to the activities in your product or process.

2. Identify how much each activity costs. Is there customer value?

3. Analyze your analysis as a team for links along the chain that could benefit from improvement. Use that insight to cut costs and increase value.

All activities in a value chain analysis example can be broken down into two overarching labels: primary and support activities. Primary categories act as umbrella labels and are the title of each row. Supporting activities are broken-down tasks that fall into each category.

If you’re wondering by value chain analysis is important, consider the level of detail that the charts delve into. Value chain analyses take minute detail into account, making them a perfect tool for teasing out less obvious snags in your workflow. Unlike other charts, activity interconnection isn’t highlighted so it’s easy to lose track of how supporting activities influence the process as a whole.
