The Value Exchange System (TM) (VES) - THE way to prosper.
Welcome to this community site which describes some of the ways in which value exchange systems can boost performance in organisations and their business networks.
A value exchange system provides:

>> Analyses to pinpoint where action is needed to effect change and achieve growth and success

From 2013 onwards, we now use the term "value exchange system" instead of "value networks" to describe more appropriately their power to transform performance in organisations.

In the late 1980's, strategic planning was the new replacement for the moribund corporate planning of earlier decades.
