Importance of Value Creation

Nowadays, businesses are more than just companies focused on making profits. They’re creating legacies, they are creating solutions that can improve people’s lives and change the world. The purpose of any business is to create value for customers, investors, and employees. Businesses solve their customers’ problems, that’s how they provide them with value. 

Creating value for customers will help you to sell more products, you can use the same tactic for shareholders as well to benefit more from future operations. You can open up numerous doors for yourself when you’ll have clearly defined steps for value creation.

Look at Value Creation More Broadly

Nowadays, value creation is related to almost everything, like brands, ideas, people, and innovation. So when it’s broadly defined, it can be seen as a better management tool and not for example just as a financial measure of business performance.

When you are creating value for your customers you’ll be able to provide them with products and services which will be very useful for them. While creating value for investors mostly involves delivering high returns on their capital consistently.

Planning Value Creation Roadmap

First of all, you’ll need to document market requirements, understand more about specific aspects that have emerged there, and how you can use them to your advantage. You’ll need to have a better idea about your products and services as well, like their quality, usability, reliability, etc. Below you’ll see important aspects that will help you to develop a successful value creation roadmap.

Create Specific and Measurable Value Drivers

Value drivers will help you to see all the important aspects of value creation and how they are connected to each other. You can even create a “value driver tree” to see the chain of events that eventually lead you to increased business value. Also, keep in mind that a typical value roadmap always contains these three measures of value, which are growth, cost reduction, and risk mitigation.

Set Realistic and Achievable Targets

In order to have a value-creation roadmap, you’ll need to define what are your high-level goals. Determine where your business is right now and where would you like to be in the future. Your targets should be very clear and realistic as well in order to plan every aspect better. Also, add target dates as well to ensure that you’ll have everything done for a specific time.

Monitor and Measure the Performance of the Value-Creation Plan

You’ll need to monitor each step that you’ll take. See how you are performing and how your value creation plan helped you so far. Check the results after each stage that you’ll be overcoming. Share your plan with your team and always add feedback to make sure that everything is up-to-date.

Understand More About the Value Gap Analysis

Also, keep in mind that you’ll have to do a value gap analysis as well. Determining the value gap is important because sometimes customers expect different products or services, but then have to deal with a completely different reality. There are numerous occasions when products are thought to have better value, but the actual value is totally different.

Dealing with the value gap will help you to have more successful campaigns. You won’t be afraid of underperforming or not performing at all. Conversion rates will be higher and you will have better chances of growing your user base as well.

Executing Strategies for Value Opportunity

Think about at least nine or ten key opportunities, and think about specific programs to drive actions. Link your objectives and actions to the value chain. Develop objectives and strategies that will be able to support your value drivers. Write down everything in more detail.

A list of Supporting Competencies

In the list of supporting competencies, you can include every skill, technology, or process that you can use. Creating a roadmap isn’t easy but with an open-minded team, you’ll be able to clearly see the value that you are providing your customers with or could provide them with in the future. Also, it can become the foundation of your company’s strategies.
