Value Chain Analysis

Value chain analysis is a process for understanding the systemic factors and conditions under which a value chain and its firms can achieve higher levels of performance. When using value chains as a means for fostering growth and reducing poverty, the analysis focuses on identifying ways to contribute to two objectives: i) improving the competitiveness of value chains with large numbers of small firms, and ii) expanding the depth and breadth of benefits generated. The results of the analysis offer industry stakeholders a vision for value chain competitiveness and form the basis for a competitiveness strategy—a plan for eliminating constraints to end market opportunities and advancing sustainable competitiveness.
