This subject introduces the business model as the mechanism used by entrepreneurs to deliver value to their selected target markets, as well as the method by which entrepreneurs capture value. This is a dynamic process that underpins the commercialisation of innovation. The challenges of designing and implementing a business model are considered, as well as the skills, resources and relationships that an entrepreneur will need to manage activities like corporate venturing and pivoting that lead to the creation of successful business model. The subject also considers the way that emerging concepts like shared value can be incorporated into a business model including marketing. This is done though comparative analysis of competitors who use different but equally successful business models, as well as considering applications where business models have failed. The subject also considers metrics for assessing the ongoing health of the business model, as well as business models as a form of innovation, not just a vehicle for entrepreneurship. Finally, the subject focuses on the applied challenges for students– the development of business models for the garage project (pop-up) and their own enterprise.
On successful completion of this subject, students should be able to:
