Discussion paper: Pathways to growth through digital business models in industrial companies
PLATFORM PUBLICATION – If core business areas are to digitalise successfully, business models will need to adapt and balance out according to pathways to growth. But which pathways to growth do businesses pursue? How do they adapt the core competencies of their business models? In this discussion paper the working group on business models looks into these questions.
Digitalisation is influencing the competitiveness of our industrial SMEs. Whilst digitalisation can destroy the traditional business models of industrial companies, it is also a key core competence when it comes to improving competitiveness and tapping fresh ways to grow. By the work with around 50 leading international industrial companies the working group on business models has been able to identify five pathways to growth through the digitalisation of business models, which are highlighted in this discussion paper.
