Operational processes and activities are a key source of competitive advantage. What you do is as important as how you do it.
An organization’s set of operational processes (value chain) are a key source of its advantages. They are also the source of price or cost differences from rivals. Anderson Lyall can help you apply best practices such as Lean thinking to optimize your value chains and build the advantages you need to compete effectively.
How does your organization create value for customers? How do you change business inputs into business outputs in such a way that they have a greater value than the original cost of creating those outputs?
The more value an organization creates, the more profitable it is likely to be. And when you provide more value to your customers than rivals do, you build competitive advantage. Understanding how your company creates value, and looking for ways to add more value, are critical elements in a superior competitive strategy.

We assist clients to configure and improve value chains that deliver unique value, and which create relative cost or price differences from rivals. Our work is always done within a strategic context to ensure that an organization’s operational improvements will build competitive advantage.
