Agnieszka Bober , Justyna Majchrzak-Lepczyk


In turbulent environments, the process of creating a value chain in a networking organization is becoming more complex. It requires a rapid response to both the opportunities and threats which shape strategic advantage and competitiveness. Although it is interpreted in various ways in the literature, today value is the subject of significant analysis. What is important, its importance is clearly emphasized in achieving business goals by companies and networking organizations. The aim of this article is to draw attention to the essence of the development of the value chain in the networking organization. A comprehensive integration of primary and secondary processes and their relationships with other participating entities allow for an increase in the value of a networking organization. The completed research aimed at recognizing, understanding and interpretation of the conditions affecting the integration of the processes which determine the value chains of suppliers and buyers in a networking organization. The research in this study consist of a literature research and qualitative research. The aim of the literature review was to verify the existing knowledge and the conditions which shape the value chain in a networking organization. The literature research and the analysis of existing data were based on industry reports, academic articles, monographs, as well as commercial knowledge bases. As regards the qualitative research – 540 expert interviews in 36 public hospitals in three analyzed provinces (Warmia-Mazury, Pomerania and Wielkopolska) – the aim was to identify barriers and challenges in the process of developing a comprehensive value chain of a networking organization.
