Abstract

Studying the implications of a business model, choosing success strategies, developing viable operational concepts or evolving a functional system, it is important to analyse it in all dimensions. For this purpose, various analysing techniques/frameworks are used. This paper is a discussion on how to use an innovative analysing framework called ABCD model on a given business model, or on a business strategy or a operational concept/idea or business system. Based on four constructs Advantages, Benefits, Constraints and Disadvantages, this system considers all determinants in key areas through analyzing the major issues and identifying the critical constituent elements. The overarching framework for four specific instances in hand namely Business model, Business strategy, Operational concept and Functional system are outlined here. Finally ABCD analysing framework is compared with other known analyzing techniques like SWOC, Competitive Profile Matrix (CPM) analysis, EFE & IFE Matrices, BCG analysing frameworks, Porter's Five Forces Model, and PESTLE Analysis.

Keywords: Business model analysis, Strategy analysis, Concept analysis, System analysis, ABCD analysis framework
