Business Model Innovation

The notions that companies have “business models” that may need to be “innovated” for sustained superior performance have become highly influential in the business world as well as in management research in the strategy and entrepreneurship fields in particular. And yet, issues of organizational design, informal organization, leadership, etc. have not been systematically linked to these discourses, although the business model construct is shot through with such fundamentally “organizational” concerns. This introductory chapter discusses why it is important to link business models and business model innovation to the “organizational dimension,” and discusses the role of organization as an antecedent and moderator of business model innovation, before ending by surveying the various ways in which the chapters in this volume meet the imperative of adding organizational content to our understanding of business model innovation.
