(p.85) 5 Understanding Management Models
Business Model Innovation

This chapter clarifies what exactly a management model is, and how it is complementary to a business model. As the authors suggest, while every company has an implicit management model, many have failed to articulate the choices they have made on these dimensions, and many have failed to align their management model with their chosen business model. Hence, reviewing the relevant bodies of academic literature on which the concept of a management model draws (e.g., structural contingency theory, organizational culture), the chapter discusses how management model innovation sometimes leads and sometimes lags business model innovation. A future research agenda is proposed.

Keywords:   management model, business model, business model innovation, contingency theory, organization culture
