Business Ecosystems: Towards a Classification Model

last modified Apr 20, 2017 01:46 PM
April 2017 Paper on 'Business Ecosystems: Towards a Classification Model' by Florian Urmetzer, Andy Neely and Veronica Martinez

This paper contributes to the business ecosystem literature by offering a classification model, allowing the differentiation of inter-company connections. The problem arose for the researchers that the definition of a business ecosystem lacks separation in the types of connection between companies. Business ecosystems are found to differentiate significantly, starting from loosely coupled to highly regulated and organised company relationships. Some may even result in newly founded business ventures. The authors are proposing a classification model for business ecosystems to allow further classifications in studies.
