On value and value networks

This whole post is from a comment I just made on the discussion board on the LinkedIn group Business Architecture Community.

In a value network, value is seemed to be created in a series of chained events where each contributing party creates a set of specific values to it’s closest receiver. This hints on the fact that value can transform in several dimensions (type, size, quality, importance and time) as it change hands. It also hints on the fact that you should focus your effort on creating value for the closest receiver.

There are excellent work done on this by several people and here are a few:

On the blog http://business-model-design.blogspot.com/ Dr. Alexander Osterwalder explains and elaborates on his methods for business model design and visualization.

I’ve use this notion of networked value to realign, build and strengthen teams.
