This chapter draws on the complementarity literature in economics and management research to dimensionalize business models innovations. Specifically, such innovation can be dimensionalized in terms of the depth and the breadth of the changes to the company’s business model that they imply. Based on this, the chapter identifies four different types of business model innovations. These different types are associated with different management challenges and require different leadership interventions to become successful. In sum, top management is found to play a crucial role in contributing to the success of business model innovation, given that its involvement matches the type of businesses model innovation chosen.

Keywords:   business model innovation, complementarity, innovation dimensions, top management, leadership
