Value Map - Supply Chain Activity
In the Value Map Activity, participants get out of their chairs and work with world and regional maps to create visual diagrams of their value chain. After marking business partners and other sites, the bigger picture of risk begins to appear, and the team gains the visibility to identify hidden dependencies, unseen vulnerabilities, and potential risks. A site with a thoroughly detailed Value Map is equipped with the visibility not only to address threats, but also to enhance operations.
How does the Value Map Activity work?
Using oversized world and regional maps, stickers and markers, the team is able to demarcate and visualize the flow of materials, services, information, and products among its internal entities, business partners, customers, and suppliers. In doing so, it becomes easy to identify unforeseen single-points-of-failure, vulnerabilities, choke-points, and systemic concerns. The map paves the way to inspect risk visibility to analyze dependencies that lie farther along the value chain. The removable stickers are designed to be easily moved around to help participants visualize what would happen if one of their sites, a particular region, or an entire organization experienced a disruption. At this point, participants can determine which proactive steps can be taken to mitigate any negative consequences.
