Business Model Innovation: A Bibliometric Review

Leonardo Vils, Marcos Rogério Mazzieri, Gustavo Viegas Rodrigues, Alexandre Rodrigues Da Silva, Mauricio Jucá de Queiroz


Using bibliometric research, we have analyzed the literature on innovation in Business Models. Concepts like Evolution of Business Models, Open Innovation, Value Acquisition and Architectural Innovation group the articles included in the analysis. Innovation in Business Models is a field of study still under development that lacks unicity and depends on Business and Innovation Models studies. We have concluded that the absence of a research agenda and unicity on the studied concepts generate, besides the collateral effect of field misunderstanding, an opportunity to those that present themselves as icons on Business Models innovation, despite the methodological deficiencies in the proposals they have presented.
