Example text

Later, Amit and Zott (2012) further developed their definition to conceptualize a firm’s business model as “a system of interdependent activities that transcends the focal firm and spans its boundaries” (Zott and Amit 2010: 216). Thus, according to this approach, a company’s business model is “a system of interconnected and interdependent activities that determines the way the firm “does business” with its customers, partners and vendors” (Amit and Zott 2012: 42). Unlike more structural definitions, where components are conceived of on the basis of their causal interactions, the representation of BMs as a system opened the BM research to new perspectives, such as the synergy between different components, and their interconnections beyond the firm.

The first one, developed in the work of Amit and Zott (2001a), considers the network from a transaction-cost economics point of view. Under this perspective, networked BMs are representations of relationships exchanged for resources and performances in order to create a networked value in the market. Specifically, “the business model is a structural template that describes the organization of the focal firm’s transactions with all of its external constituencies in factor and product markets” (Zott and Amit 2007: 1).

1. Strategic Activities and managerial decisions. Practitioners were among the early pioneers attempting to identify the components of BMs. For instance, Hamel (2000), describing the strategic BM components, identified the core strategies that allow companies to create a competitive structure able to successfully introduce technological innovation into the market. The strategic management literature mainly focuses on BM activities (strategic activities) that companies must implement to create value and gain a competitive position in the market (Chesbrough and Rosenbloom 2002).
