Changes in Business Models

This project at MIT spots a very interesting aspect, how business models are changing (or new ones appear) in today's innovative businesses.

"We define a business model as a description of the activities that a company performs to generate revenue or other benefits, and the relationships, information, and product flows a company has with its customers, suppliers, and complementors."
We propose to study changes in business models in three ways:
  • developing frameworks for analyzing and classifying business models
  • classifying empirically the business models of substantial numbers of companies
  • testing hypotheses about the distribution, performance, and evolution of different business models

The project's approach and goals looks interesting enough to be worth keeping the URL for later visit.
