Systems are seen as procedures which help the business run. They can also be viewed as strategies. As we can see on the model coming next, systems are usually directly related to technology. The purpose of this topic is to evaluate whether the systems integrated in the company do create value and competitive advantages or not.
One should highlight that normally each organization has its own systems implemented. In the next article we will refer to a specific model (Porter’s Value Chain), which takes in high consideration the interaction between primary activities and support activities. This system aims to create competitive advantage by having a successful interaction between all the activities.
To summarize, we must say that there is no perfect system for any company. Each system has to be constantly adopted and improved to respond to obstacles and routines of the organization. The Porter’s Value Chain Model is just an example which in fact represents a pattern for many enterprises.
