Conceptualizing and qualifying disruptive business models
Keywords:Disruptive business model, Innovation, Technology
Purpose – This paper aims to elaborate a set of characteristics that conceptualize and qualify a disruptive business model. Design/methodology/approach – The literature on disruptive business models will be analyzed using the latent semantic analysis (LSA) technique, complemented by content analysis, to obtain a more precise qualification and conceptualization regarding disruptive business models. Findings – The results found described concepts already described in the theory. However, such findings, highlighted by the LSA, bring new perspectives to the analysis of the disruptive business models, little discussed in the literature and which reveal important considerations to be made on this subject. Research limitations/implications – It should be noted, about the technique used, a limitation on the choice of the number of singular values. For this to be a problem in the open literature, the authors tried to work not just with the cost-benefit ratio given the addition of each new dimension in the analysis, as well as a criterion of saturation of the terms presented. Practical implications – The presentation of this set of characteristics can be used as a validation tool to identify if a business is or is not a disruptive business model by managers. Originality/value – The originality of this paper is the achievement of a consolidated set of characteristics that conceptualize and qualify the disruptive business models by conducting an in-depth analysis of the literature on disruptive business models through the LSA technique, considering the difficulty of obtaining precise concepts on this subject in the literature.
