Is the Value Concept a Valuable Concept for Information Systems?

Coen Suurmond

Abstract

The creation of value and value chains are popular terms in business management literature. The question is what is exactly meant by value, and what the usefulness of the concept is for operational information systems. In the paper different uses of the term value will be analysed. Subsequently the creation of value for customers will be analysed from a business point of view. The conclusion is that operational processes deal with specifications and norms, which are themselves translations of a background notion of value for the customer in combination with value for the company itself.
