Business model frameworks

How familiar are you with different business model frameworks? What framework will suit your needs best?

Selecting the right framework may depend upon, amongst others, the purpose (e.g. communication, brainstorming, business plan, system development), the setting (e.g. start-up or established company, organization or network, social or technical) and the type of support required (e.g. modelling language, visualisation, templates, tool support, etc.).

Below you find a list of some of the more well-known and published frameworks:

  • The Business Model Canvas (Osterwalder & Pigneur)
  • The Four-Box Business Model (Johnson)
  • The STOF model (Bouwman, De Vos & Haaker)
  • Business Model Schematics (Weill & Vitale)
  • Technology/market mediation (Chesbrough & Rosenbloom)
  • Entrepreneur’s business model (Morris, Schindehutte & Allen)
  • e3-value (Gordijn & Akkerman)
For a more detailed description and discussion see the whitepaper ‘Understanding business models.'.
