Value Chain Analysis – How Switzerland can help
How would you like to develop your business? Is your business model based on innovations? Would you like to optimize your processes and structures or do you look out for new markets? A Value Chain Analysis is a vital tool for mapping, evaluating and communicating how a multinational business works.
A value chain is a set of activities performed by a firm in a particular industry in order to deliver a valuable product or service to the market. As businesses become ever more global, their operating structures are also adapting to manage complex supply chains and new management models. These commercially driven changes can have huge tax implications, with the location and interaction of strategic management, R&D, supply chain and marketing functions, assets and risks all influencing the profile of the group.
A value chain analysis can help you to identify opportunities to improve efficiency whilst ensuring you can comply with today’s transparency and tax requirements and get ahead of tomorrow’s developments. There are six value drivers which can be identified: Procurement and Supply Chain, Sales and Marketing, Research and Development, Design and Branding, Manufacturing and Operational Excellence. Switzerland offers in each of this value drivers areas advantages that can help to grow your business.
