Background to Special Issue

The emergence of icons of success such as Facebook, Google, and Apple
initiated strong and continuing research and media interest in business
models as a means of exploiting technology and innovations. In response,
researchers have produced a rich and growing body of theory and empirical
studies on the phenomenon. However, substantial conceptual developments
have not yet been translated to guide management practice, messages about
how managers can use business models and achieve business model innovation
are confusing and often contradictory. There is growing theoretical
acceptance that creating and capturing value requires firms to sense their
customer’s needs, create value to meet these needs, capture the value and
monetise it, but few entrepreneurs or managers know how to achieve this
through their existing business model(s) or business model innovation. This
is an urgent need in all companies be large or small, be mature or recent.
A recent Accenture survey confirms that most (95%) senior managers in large
Western organizations are concerned about the appropriateness of their
business model(s) for operating under current competitive conditions. IT
and digital innovation are usually the premises of the emergence of new
business models.

Types of Submissions Requested

In line with the Journal of Business Strategy’s mission of publishing
articles with a practical focus to help organizations to develop successful
business strategies, this special issue will reduce ambiguity on business
model thinking by providing accessible, leading edge insights for managers
and CIOs. We ask you to translate your empirical work to respond to the
practitioner focus of this journal and to provide cutting edge insights for
managers and CIOs across all types of organizations, from start-ups, SMEs
to multinational enterprises with a large portfolio of business models. We
are focusing on single innovative business models as well as the
articulation of business models within portfolio. We are focusing on the
process to invent new business models, mostly based on innovative use of IT
as well as implementation of business models within companies. We are also
inviting papers which focus on companies as well as not for profit
organizations. We are interested in papers which go beyond anecdotal
descriptions of the phenomenon and represent substantial translations of
theory development for practitioner guidance.

Papers submitted to this special issue by 30 th September, 2015 via the
guest editors (Vincent.mangematin at grenoble-em.com, aravarini at liuc.it,

models to provide new insights and ideas on the use of business models as
