Business model

1 History

A business model is an abstract representation of an


organization, be it conceptual, textual, and/or graphical, of all core interrelated architectural, co-operational,
and nancial arrangements designed and developed by
an organization presently and in the future, as well as all
core products and/or services the organization oers, or
will oer, based on these arrangements that are needed
to achieve its strategic goals and objectives.[1] [2] This
denition by Al-Debei and Avison (2008) indicates that
value proposition, value architecture (the organizational
infrastructure and technological architecture that allows
the movement of products, services, and information),
value nance (modeling information related to total cost
of ownership, pricing methods, and revenue structure),
and value network articulate the primary constructs or dimensions of business models.[3]

Over the years, business models have become much more


sophisticated. The bait and hook business model (also
referred to as the "razor and blades business model" or
the tied products business model) was introduced in the
early 20th century. This involves oering a basic product
at a very low cost, often at a loss (the bait), then charging compensatory recurring amounts for rells or associated products or services (the hook). Examples include:
razor (bait) and blades (hook); cell phones (bait) and air
time (hook); computer printers (bait) and ink cartridge
rells (hook); and cameras (bait) and prints (hook). A
variant of this model is Adobe, a software developer that
gives away its document reader free of charge but charges
several hundred dollars for its document writer.

A business model thus describes the rationale of how an


organization creates, delivers, and captures value,[4] in
economic, social, cultural or other contexts. The process
of business model construction is part of business strategy.

In the 1950s, new business models came from


McDonalds Restaurants and Toyota. In the 1960s,
the innovators were Wal-Mart and Hypermarkets. The
1970s saw new business models from FedEx and Toys

represent core aspects of a business, including purpose, Today, the type of business models might depend on how

of narrative or coherence in business model descriptions
as mechanisms by which entrepreneurs create extraordinarily successful growth rms.[6]

2 Theoretical and empirical insights to business models

Business models are used to describe and classify businesses, especially in an entrepreneurial setting, but they
are also used by managers inside companies to explore possibilities for future development. Well-known
business models can operate as recipes for creative
managers.[7] Business models are also referred to in some
instances within the context of accounting for purposes of
public reporting.

2.1 Design logic and narrative coherence


Design logic views the business model as an outcome of
creating new organizational structures or changing existing structures to pursue a new opportunity. Gerry George
and Adam Bock (2011) conducted a comprehensive literature review and surveyed managers to understand how
they perceived the components of a business model. In
that analysis these authors show that there is a design
logic behind how entrepreneurs and managers perceive
1

and explain their business model. In further extensions to


the design logic, George and Bock (2012) use case studies and the IBM survey data on business models in large
companies, to describe how CEOs and entrepreneurs create narratives or stories in a coherent manner to move the
business from one opportunity to another. They also show
that when the narrative is incoherent or the components
of the story are misaligned, that these businesses tend to
fail. They recommend ways in which the entrepreneur or
CEO can create strong narratives for change.

2.2

Complementarities of business models


between partnering rms

Studying collaborative research and the accessing of external sources of technology, Hummel et al. (2010)
found that in deciding on business partners, it is important to make sure that both parties business models are
complementary.[9] For example, they found that it was
important to identify the value drivers of potential partners by analyzing their business models, and that it is benecial to nd partner rms that understand key aspects of
our own rms business model.[10]
The University of Tennessee conducted research into
highly collaborative business relationships. Researchers
codied their research into a sourcing business model
known as Vested (also referred to as Vested Outsourcing). Vested is a hybrid sourcing business model in which
buyers and suppliers in an outsourcing or business relationship focus on shared values and goals to create an arrangement that is highly collaborative and mutually benecial to each.[11]

Categorization of business models

From about 2012, some research and experimentation has theorized about a so-called liquid business
model.[12][13]

Value Architecture: portrays the concept as a

Value Network: depicts the cross-company or
inter-organization perspective towards the concept
and has gained much attention in the BM literature.
Value Finance: depicts information related to costing, pricing methods, and revenue structure

3.2 Shift from pipes to platforms


Sangeet Paul Choudary (2013) distinguishes between two
broad families of business models in an article in Wired
magazine.[14] Choudary contrasts pipes (linear business
models) with platforms (networked business models). In
the case of pipes, rms create good and services, push
them out and sell them to customers. Value is produced
upstream and consumed downstream. There is a linear
ow, much like water owing through a pipe. Unlike
pipes, platforms do not just create and push stu out.
They allow users to create and consume value.
In an op-ed on MarketWatch,[15] Choudary, Van Alstyne
and Parker further explain how business models are moving from pipes to platforms, leading to disruption of entire industries.

3.3 Platform business models


In an earlier article [16] Choudary elaborates on the three
elements of a successful platform business model. The
Toolbox creates connection by making it easy for others
to plug into the platform. This infrastructure enables interactions between participants. The Magnet creates pull
that attracts participants to the platform. For transaction
platforms, both producers and consumers must be present
to achieve critical mass. The Matchmaker fosters the ow
of value by making connections between producers and
consumers. Data is at the heart of successful matchmaking, and distinguishes platforms from other business models.

emphasized that Business Model 2.0 has to take into account not just the technology eect of Web 2.0 but also
the networking eect. He gave the example of the success story of Amazon in making huge revenues each year
by developing an open platform that supports a community of companies that re-use Amazons on-demand commerce services.[17]

5 Business model design


Business model design refers to the activity of designing
a companys business model. It is part of the business
development and business strategy process and involves
design methods.

5.1 Denitions of business model

Applications

Malone et al.[18] found that some business models, as dened by them, indeed performed better than others in a
dataset consisting of the largest U.S. rms, in the period
1998 through 2002, while they did not prove whether the
existence of a business model mattered.
In the context of the Software-Cluster, which is funded by
the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research,
a business model wizard for software companies has been
developed. It supports the design and analysis of software
business models. The tools underlying concept and data
were published in various scientic publications.

Al-Debei and Avison (2010) dene a business model

may be conceptual, textual, and/or graphical, of all core
interrelated architectural, co-operational, and nancial
arrangements designed and developed by an organization presently and in the future, as well all core products and/or services the organization oers, or will oer,

strategic goals and objectives.[1] This denition indicates
that value proposition, value architecture, value nance,
and value network articulate the primary constructs or dimensions of business models.[3]

Model Development

In the early history of business models it was very typical to dene business model types such as bricks-andmortar or e-broker. However, these types usually describe only one aspect of the business (most often the revenue model). Therefore, more recent literature on business models concentrate on describing a business model
as a whole, instead of only the most visible aspects.

The following examples provide an overview for various

Collective business models
Business system, organization or association
typically composed of relatively large numbers
of businesses, tradespersons or professionals in
the same or related elds of endeavor, which
pools resources, shares information or provides
other benets for their members. For example, a science park or high-tech campus provides shared resources (e.g. cleanrooms and
other lab facilities) to the rms located on its
premises, and in addition seeks to create an
innovation community among these rms and
their employees.[42]

going through traditional distribution channels,
which had some type of intermediate (such as a
distributor, wholesaler, broker, or agent), companies may now deal with every customer directly, for example via the Internet.
Direct sales model
Direct selling is marketing and selling products
to consumers directly, away from a xed retail location. Sales are typically made through
party plan, one-to-one demonstrations, and
other personal contact arrangements. A text
book denition is: The direct personal presentation, demonstration, and sale of products and services to consumers, usually in their
homes or at their jobs.[43]
Distribution business models, various
Value-added reseller model
Value Added Reseller is a model where a business makes something which is resold by other
businesses but with modications which add
value to the original product or service. These
modications or additions are mostly industry
specic in nature and are essential for the distribution. Businesses going for a VAR model
have to develop a VAR network. It is one of
the latest collaborative business models which
can help in faster development cycles and is
adopted by many Technology companies especially software.
Fee in, free out
Business model which works by charging the
rst client a fee for a service, while oering that
service free of charge to subsequent clients.
Franchise
Franchising is the practice of using another
rms successful business model. For the franchisor, the franchise is an alternative to building 'chain stores to distribute goods and avoid
investment and liability over a chain. The
franchisors success is the success of the franchisees. The franchisee is said to have a greater
incentive than a direct employee because he or
she has a direct stake in the business.
Sourcing business model

needs to work with another party to be successful. It is the combination of two concepts:
the contractual relationship framework a company uses with its supplier (transactional, relational, investment based), and the economic
model used (transactional, output or outcomebased).
Freemium business model
Business model that works by oering basic
Web services, or a basic downloadable digital
product, for free, while charging a premium for
advanced or special features.[44]
Pay what you can (PWYC) is a non-prot or forprot business model which does not depend on set
prices for its goods, but instead asks customers to
pay what they feel the product or service is worth
to them.[45][46][47] It is often used as a promotional
tactic,[48] but can also be the regular method of doing business. It is a variation on the gift economy and cross-subsidization, in that it depends on
reciprocity and trust to succeed.
"Pay what you want" (PWYW) is sometimes used synonymously, but pay what you can is often more oriented
to charity or socially oriented uses, based more on ability
to pay, while pay what you want is often more broadly
oriented to perceived value in combination with willingness and ability to pay.

Business model frameworks

Technology centric communities have dened frameworks for business modeling. These frameworks attempt to dene a rigorous approach to dening business
value streams. It is not clear, however, to what extent such
frameworks are actually important for business planning.
Business model frameworks represent the core aspect of
any company; they involve the totality of how a company selects its customers denes and dierentiates its
oerings, denes the tasks it will perform itself and those
it will outsource, congures its resource, goes to market, creates utility for customers, and captures prots.[49]
A business framework involves internal factors (market
analysis; products/services promotion; development of
trust; social inuence and knowledge sharing) and external factors (competitors and technological aspects).[50] A
state of the art review on business model frameworks can
be found in Krumeich et al. (2012).[51] In the following
some frameworks are introduced.

9 Related concepts
The process of business model design is part of business
strategy. Business model design and innovation refer to
the way a rm (or a network of rms) denes its business
logic at the strategic level.
In contrast, rms implement their business model at the
operational level, through their business operations. This
refers to their process-level activities, capabilities, functions and infrastructure (for example, their business processes and business process modeling), their organisational structures (e.g. organigrams, workows, human
resources) and systems (e.g. information technology architecture, production lines).
Consequently, an operationally viable and feasible business model requires lateral alignment with the underlining
business operations.[54]
The brand is a consequence of the business model and
has a symbiotic relationship with it, because the business
model determines the brand promise, and the brand equity becomes a feature of the model. Managing this is a
task of integrated marketing.
The standard terminology and examples of business models do not apply to most nonprot organizations, since
their sources of income are generally not the same as the
beneciaries. The term funding model is generally used
instead.[55]
