This article is about business model (BM) innovation. It starts from the premise that managers - according to the authors - still lack appropriate frameworks and tools to support them in updating their company's existing BM.
The purpose of the paper is to offer managers a set of tools to develop new BM and improve existing ones.
The authors conducted a systematic literature review to group existing BMs into appropriate groups. The BMs are then grouped into separate classes.
The paper systematically develops a list of 71 BM configurations and groups them into an ontological classification scheme according to five groups: Value Proposition, Value Segment, Value Configuration, Value Network, and Value Capture.
The paper illustrates how the BM innovation framework, enabled by this ontological classification scheme, provides a platform for identifying BM innovation routes for companies, allowing managers to envisage radical, disruptive, and new-to-the world BM configuration ideas, or apply existing configurations from other industrial settings in what may be deemed new-to-the-industry innovation.
