Abstract

This article discusses an application of practice theory to business models, explaining business modelling as a practice for successful venture development. Rooted in applications of Bourdieu’s and Giddens’ practice theory concepts and a process-relational approach, the article deconstructs business model development in new venture creation processes. The study develops theoretical underpinning for daily strategising and reconceptualises “business model” to be able to map what entrepreneurs are doing. Drawing on narrative analysis and case studies with three UK service business start-ups the article explores how daily strategising can be seen as re-modelling doing business. The discussion explores business modelling as the alternative dynamic view to a business model. Implications for theory and research are discussed in light of building more sustainable high performance new organisations in uncertain times.
