Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present one of the ways to increase the value of a business by identifying and assessing the structure of its value chain. The article indicates conditions contributing to the need to increase research on the enterprise value chain. The main part of the article presents a methodology for analysing the value chain through the characteristics of its various stages. These include identifying the needs and expectations of clients, analysing the processes that make up an enterprise’s value chain, analysing the costs of processes in the existing configuration of the value chain, evaluating resources and competences in the value chain and studying the relationships between companies in the value chain. An important aspect in the analysis of the value chain is to establish a set of criteria that will make it possible to assess three areas: how the existing model of the value chain in the enterprise functions from the point of view of satisfying customer needs, the value creation process as a cost, and the effectiveness of all taken action.
