Introduction to Porter's Value Chain and Five Forces Model
In 1985, Michael E. Porter defined the dimension of value creation in business. His book
Competitive Advantage explained value chain as the collection of integral processes and
interventions executed by an organization to create and advance value for consumers. The book
expounded on the bond between competitive advantage and the value chain analysis process. The
Porter's Value Chain Model acts as a strategic management architecture for understanding the
value chain within a profit and customer-centric business organization. To define a reputable
performance in value creation, the company's competitive position is a fundamental perspective
to consider. The Five Competitive Position Forces were birthed to shape an organization's
strength to assess and evaluate its competitive position and strength. A robust foundation of the
five forces of suppliers' bargaining power, consumer's bargaining power, threats of substitutes,

sales performance. Strategies for targeting appropriate consumers and enhancing visibility such
as promotion and advertising are inherently attained through the marketing and sales domain of
the Value Chain. Activities that will help convince customers to buy and interact with the
company products are enhanced through the Value Chain strategy (Palumbo et al., 2020). The
digital and online marketing tools are all available for the company to use and integrate into the
marketing and sales programs.
Another imperative benefit of Chain Value is technical development. The company will
enjoy high-level designs and advanced manufacturing techniques driven by the proliferated
innovations and migration to cloud services. The company products will be designed with
unrivaled technical capabilities, and the specifications will offer the customers a whole new
market experience (Tarver, 202...
