Lesson 5 Study Journal

From the Dowding(2001) ‘Universal Business Model’, it is easy to catch the conceptual design of a business/organization/enterprise. Every component of the business has been analysis, which reveals the advantage and disadvantage of the current business.

Ten aspects of the ‘Universal Business Model’

  • Identity (Name, Constitution, Reputation, Impact)
  • Purpose (Raison d'etre, Core values, Vision, Mission, Key policy, Target Market)
  • Structure (Physical deployment, Functional composition, Roles and jobs, Workplaces, Reporting structure, External infrastructure)
  • Participants (Owners, Managers, Workers, Channel, Customers, Suppliers,Partners, Neighbours, Indirect participants)
  • Enablers (Land and buildings, Technology, Intellectual property, information, Skills, Core competencies, Relationships, Financial resources)
  • Activities (Line-of-business, Support, Management, Compliance, Incidental)
  • Deliverables (Products, Services)
  • Influences (Constraints and pressures, Risk and threats, Opportunities, competitors)
  • Culture (Management style, Rules and customs, Social behaviour, Attitude to work, Benefits and perks, Personal development)
  • Performance (Scale, Efficiency, Empathy, Innovation, Financial)

    The architecture of a system defines its basic components and important concepts and describes the relationships among them. (Treese, G., and Stewart L., 2002, Designing Systems for Internet Commerce
