Business Model Innovation

Business Model Innovation (BMI) is a crucial driver of both business and productivity growth across national economies and yet there is relatively little empirical proof of the effective impact of new business models, nor are there adequate conceptual models of what these drivers are and the consequences of using them. Currently, BMI is a term that is widely used amongst business and public sector practitioners however, it lacks strong evidence and rigorous research.

The aim of our programme of research is to fill this gap by conducting, large-scale data collection and analysis on Business Model Innovation. Research is undertaken with supportive industry partners to explore what models work in which scenarios, how to deliver innovation, when models should change, and how.
