  • Value Chain Analysis- Primary ActivitiesInbound logistics - HIGH• Inbound logistics add a lot of product value for large ISPs since they need to minimize the ‘lease’ costs.Outbound logistics - HIGH• Outbound logistics are relatively high for large ISP’s since they need to ‘minimize’ ‘lease’ costs.Operations - LOW• Typically, larger ISP’s have low operation costs since they get their technology at a bargain.Marketing and Sales - HIGH• Customer perception of product is entirely through marketing of the product. Hence, Marketing and Sales have a relatively high priority.Services - LOW• Services have a low priority since, they do not serve a niche market but a more generalized market.
  • Secondary ActivitiesProcurement - LOW • Procurement is easy once there’s infrastructure in place, since a single long lease from a telco is generally sufficient.Human Resource Management – LOW • Human Resource management is not very important for companies of the size of Hathway since they have a sufficiently large amount of technical backup staff.Technology Development - HIGH • Frequent changes in standard technology implies that Technology Development is a necessary cost for an ISP.Infrastructure - HIGH • Frequent expansions require a lot of infrastructure development. This is quite important in a company of Hathway.
  • Value Chain Order: Primary Activity rank:  Marketing and Sales > Inbound Logistics = Outbound Logistics > Services > Operations  Secondary Activity rank:  Infrastructure > Technological Development > Procurement > Human Resource Management
