I would just add to the comments below and say that the #1 thing to learn is the value chain itself!

For ANY value chain case, make sure you understand how it works. Meaning, what are the steps from beginning to end, what are the inputs + outputs in each step (internal and external), where is the largest value added, and where can things go wrong.

Hi,

3 types of cases use value chains:

  • Cases in supply chain and logistics
  • Cases on synergies (You have synergies in revenues and costs. You investigate cost synergies with the value chain)
  • Cases with operational bottlenecks (e.g. Reduce the queue at the ski resort. Reduce the write-offs in retail)

The basic value chain in retail is: supply / production / distribution / retail, but of course will be different for different industries

When building a value chain, think about it in the following way - every process has

  • Something going in
  • Something being processed
  • Something going out

Don't forget about transportation in between and after-sales support

Hello!

In my experience, these are the kind of cases candidates struggle most with.

First of all, hints to identify those: cases involving supply chain and logistics, cases with operational bottlenecks, etc.

For those, key thing is to identfy and even draw in a piece of people asap in the case the whole value chain, not only including product flow but also influencing agents (e.g., for the go-to-market of an specific drug, don´t only include the flow factory > distributors > pharmacy > patients but also dotted lines with insurance companies and doctors.

For this, make questions such as "do you have information about the different agents in the value chain?", etc.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara
