Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch


Modularity has extended its application from product, process and organizational domains to newer ones such as services and business models. This growing literature has built up on the assumption that business models are complex systems and, as such, modularity could harness multiple benefits, such as business model innovation. In this sense, the aim of this article is to analyse the main theoretical insights towards the application of modularity principles to business model. Business model modularity is in exploratory phase, needing deeper theoretical refinements in order to identify main constructs and variables.
