Agricultural value chains employ half the global labour force, control half of the world's assets and account for some forty per cent of consumer purchases. This course explores the management and performance issues surrounding agriculture and food value chains in both developed and developing countries. Students learn the practical, conceptual and academic aspects of value chain assessment and management, including: (i) learning techniques and methods for mapping supply chains and assessing performance; (ii) examining how value chain relationships and information flows impact business outcomes; (iii) investigating strategic supply chain management concepts; and (iv) studying the major trends in value chain management. Basic economic theory concepts and analytical tools are used to deal with the issues being discussed. Students apply and utilise the appropriate conceptual and theoretical models in workshop groups during the intensive, and then in a major assignment which is presented either as a traditional academic paper or a formal business report.
