A business model describes the rationale of how an organization creates, delivers, and captures value. It is a visual chart with elements describing a firm’s value proposition, infrastructure, customers, and finances.

Business Model (Wikipedia)

A business model describes how an organization creates, delivers, and captures value, in economic, social, cultural or other contexts. For a business, it describes the specific way in which it conducts itself, spends, and earns money in a way that generates profit. The process of business model construction and modification is also called business model innovation and forms a part of business strategy.

Business model innovation is an iterative and potentially circular process.

In theory and practice, the term business model is used for a broad range of informal and formal descriptions to represent core aspects of an organization or business, including purpose, business process, target customers, offerings, strategies, infrastructure, organizational structures, profit structures, sourcing, trading practices, and operational processes and policies including culture.
