Value Chain Approach

Value Chain Approach Infographic

Value chains represent all the steps and links in a system from beginning to end. When every step and link performs at its best, the entire value chain performs at its best. Businesses and non-profits benefit from enhanced value chain management.

Connect with Unrivaled Expertise

The Axia Institute is affiliated with many leaders in value chain creation and development, including the MSU Eli Broad College of Business, whose supply chain management program consistently ranks #1. We routinely draw on all our partners’ expertise to better serve you.
