Business Model Configurations

Seminar at HEC/ISI by Christian Nielsen, entitled ”Business Model Configurations: Challenging business model innovation and performance measurement”. Christian is head of the Business Model Design Center (web).

“This essay offers a new way forward for identifying business model innovation potentials and performance measures and the subsequent benchmarking of them. Initially, it expands upon the concept of business models by discussing the level of business model configurations, also known as patterns or taxonomies. The concept of business model configurations offers a value driver platform with related clusters of KPIs connected to 71 identified business model configurations as a starting point for management’s identification of relevant performance measures. The identification of value drivers is also a potential platform from which to create a decision support mechanism for business model innovation.”
