19 Capturing Value A supply chain approach to developing national export development strategies

20 STRATEGY  It’s the creation of a unique and value position involving a different set of activities

21 DISTINCTIVE VALUE CHAIN Strategic Positioning

22 THE VALUE PROPOSITION  Needs to be different from the competition to create competitive advantage.  If the value proposition is not different, you are probably simply in the business of doing things better ie. operationally effective and do NOT have a strategy

23 The value proposition for Wales. Trade strategy-makers are preoccupied with export promotion and market access Economic development depends on export delivery performance, fulfilment and supply chain capabilities How to convince strategy- makers to pay equal attention to border-in and border-out supply chain support. Find a mechanism for devising appropriate policies The Issue :


25 What can government and business leaders do?  Employ a value-chain approach to trade sector trade strategy development  Support the removal of technical obstacles and alignment of activities for efficient export operations  Motivate business owners to value professionals and raise skills to international working standards  Support independent professional knowledge and skills development institutions  Encourage sharing of information about target markets consumer standards,working, financing and legal practices

26 Information Human Resources Networks and Relation- ships Management: Planning Executing Monitoring Enterprise Demand forecasts Customer delivery requirements Inputs’ supply markets Supply chain services Securing & developing SCM expertise Supplier development programs Strategic supply chain alliances Improved information helps enterprises to plan ahead and be more competitive Financial and Physical Assets Planning & acquisition of physical assets Cash flow impact and financial risks in the supply chain

27 Strategy makers should focus on delivery performance and the supply chain structure in equal measures to market access and export promotion

28 A BFO  Purchasers will need help to source locally  SME’s will need help to break into supply chains  Purchasers & SME’s need to bury their prejudices  The various agencies in Wales must work together & be coherent in their approach

29 Supply Chain Management  It’s about people, expertise and performance  Not just about process.

30 And Finally ……….. There is a need to recognise the reality of relationships within supply chain management-it’s a RISK and a REVENUE Sharing Relationship.
