VALUE CHAIN AND DEMAND METHODOLOGY
Review the “Value Chain” section in Chapter 1 of the text. Now consider your present position (or past position) and draw a simple value chain to include both primary activities and support activities. Do you have any recommendations to make your value chain more efficient or effective?
Review Table 2.1 “Comparisons of dependent and independent demand” in Chapter 2 of the text. Now consider your present organization (or past organization) and identify one of the demands that the organization utilizes. In 200-300 words, describe how your organization uses that demand methodology, and provide an additional demand methodology that you could recommend to your current or former organization.
