The value grid model was proposed by Pil and Holweg as a means to show that the way firms compete has shifted away from the linear value chain way management theory has traditionally thought about value chain management.
The advantages of a value-grid framework, as opposed to value chains, is in allowing companies' managers to strategize and coordinate operations. Common non-linear value chain strategies include influencing demand, modifying information access, exploring multitier penetration, managing risk, seizing value, integrating value, creating new value propositions, exploiting value chains across tiers, pursuing pinch-point mapping, and defining demand enablers.

Get the most return on investment from your garden by calculating which vegetables, fruits, and herbs give the highest payback. To make the selection process of what to grow easy, Mel Bartholomew -- author of the best-selling Square Foot Gardening -- has a new book to maximize your garden's return on investment.
High-Value Veggies is an easy-to-use reference book that will help you choose edibles that make the most financial and spatial sense for your space. Explore the thought processes and math behind growing vegetables and herbs in order to craft the best plan for you.
Maximizing your garden's yield is no simple task. Consider the tomato; most people think it's a safe bet for a high-yield return - but which variety? Heirloom tomatoes typically cost $5 or more a pound at farmers' markets. You can beat that price by growing Cherokee Purples from seed at a net cost of only 80 cents per pound. If you plant purchased seedlings, the cost will go up to about $1 a pound -- and that's including the cost of water and fertilizer. This is the kind of invaluable data and advice you can trust High-Value Veggies to provide.
Whether you're interested in growing tomatoes, pumpkins, cabbage, corn, or anything else, it's wise to consider the invisible dollar signs sown along the way. The relative return on investment for each veggie in High-Value Veggies is calculated based on dollar value generated for each square foot planted. You don't need to be a math whiz to plan your next vegetable garden. Bartholomew has done the math for you, and he has cost-effective answers.

As oil prices continue to rise, many people are starting to think about how to unhook from the electricity grid. The Renewable Energy Handbook focuses completely on off-grid, sustainable living and rural energy independence.
Author/engineer William H. Kemp, who is a leading expert in small- and mid-scale renewable energy technologies, designed and built his own off-grid home. The result is a house that has all the standard âmiddle-classâ creature comforts while using less than five times the total fossil-fuel energy of the average North American house.
The Renewable Energy Handbook focuses on the unique requirements of off-grid living and contains chapters on energy conservation; heating and cooling; backup power; domestic water heating; wireless communications; photovoltaic, wind, and microhydro energy generation; battery selection; and inverters.
Since its release in 2003, The Renewable Energy Handbook has been a top-selling technology book and is recognized as the best book in its field.
The book is augmented with hundreds of illustrations, line drawings, photographs, and appendices.
Best of all, this is a fun project; one you can easily crank out in a few leisurely weekends. All you need are the few tools found in most home workshops. Everything's easy here - anyone can do it - you can't go wrong.
The Solar Wizard is a popular, proven design - with over 31,000 manuals sold by mail (at $39.98 each) since 2009. Friends kept bugging me to bring it to Amazon; so here it is. We're talking endless, high-energy, and pollution-free electric power here. Now, saving money while going GREEN has never been easier.
Compared to $20,000+ factory-built units, it's quite economical - a very wise investment. When it comes to keeping hard-earned dollars in your wallet, where they belong, it's the only way to go!
Nothing man-made is perfect - and even "top-of-the-line" factory-built systems are not immune to failure. They're complex, requiring skilled, high-paid, technicians to diagnose and repair - leaving you to foot the bill for replacing expensive "manufacturer-approved components."
While the Solar Wizard isn't perfect, its simple design lends itself well to inexpensive repair. You'll save a bundle by doing it yourself - simply by following the easy and detailed steps called out in my handy Troubleshooting chapter. I think you'll agree - starting your own Solar Wizard project is the way to go!
