Large business organisations constitute not only a single strategic business unit, but a culmination of several business units. The business units which may number anywhere from 4 to as many as 20 or more cannot be considered as a single, separate and disparate entity (Balakrishnan and Cheng, 2009). Rather the business units are attached to each other like a string completing a full circle, where each complements the predecessor and the successor. The breakdown of any one entity in the chain can have a telling effect on the whole chain itself. Now depending on the type of sector chosen the units in the business chain vary in number and complexity (Calza and Passaro, 2007). For example unlike a software company the units/ operational units in company which deals with products/goods are much larger in number. As explained in the previous lines the units in operation are linked and performance of one affects the performance of the other units linked to that unit. Value chain management comes in this picture (Girod and Rugman, 2009). Value chain management fine tunes the operational performance of each separate unit of the business, so that the concerted performance of each unit helps to attain the business, its targeted quality and performance target.

The company chosen for value chain management analysis is TESCO. It is one of the top retail market players in UK. TESCO has transformed itself through years and have also expanded into international geographical areas also like Asia, Europe and North America (Gunasekarana and Ngai, 2008). The investigation into its value chain management will help to understand how Tesco thrives to imbibe value in its operational units.
