Organisering på tværs af organisatoriske grænser

Forretningsmodeller, Inter-organisatorisk samarbejde, Værdiskabelse


Værdiskabelse sker i stigende grad på tværs af organisatoriske grænser og skaber dermed grundlag for gentænkning og innovation af eksisterende forretningsmodeller. Der eksisterer derfor et behov for at gøre op med det traditionelle fokus på enkeltstående forretningsmodeller i isolerede organisationer. I denne artikel introduceres en distinktion mellem intra- og inter-organisatoriske forretningsmodeller. Ved at bygge bro mellem forskellige teoretiske dimensioner af inter-organisatorisk samarbejde og forretningsmodellitteratur diskuteres, hvorledes forretningsmodelinnovation kan være en tilgang til at skabe organisering på tværs af organisatoriske grænser. Dette eksemplificeres gennem en case, der følger inter-organisatorisk samarbejde omkring forretningsmodeludvikling og etablering af en kollaborativ forretningsmodel på Aalborg Havn.
