Value chain management (VCM) is an important concept that integrates supply chain components and processes with performance management, monitoring, communication, governance and value. You will investigate stakeholders, beneficiaries, value chain structure and value-creating elements, and be exposed to how a focus on value can benefit all the businesses and actors in a producer-to-consumer chain. You will explore how chain efficiency and effectiveness can affect net value of products to end users and each participant and impact of the whole value chain. Through online learning activities, case studies, tutorials, and workshops, you will also learn the importance of customer relationships, the impact of branding and messaging, and where value might be created in digital transactions.
