The extent to which a competitor represents a threat depends substantially on its business model and how it creates value for its customers, its partners, and itself.
It is predicted that in the future, business model innovation will be more critical to an organization’s success than product innovation, and understanding competitors’ business models is a pre-requisite to winning against them in the marketplace.
