Problem Investigation of the correlation of the business platform theoretical
stance with existing external relevant theories and models and the
practical applicability, tangibility and portrayal ability of the model on

Purpose The purpose of this thesis is to, through analysis of the areas
comprising the business platform, validate that the business platform
can be connected to existing theory thus implicating that it might
accomplish its intended purpose. The goal of the thesis is not to
validate the purpose of the business platform but to anchor the theory
behind the platform with external theories.
Method The research behind this report is based on a qualitative study. The
theoretical approach has been emphasised but additional information
has been gathered from interviews and investigations into case
companies. Secondary sources, literature, have been collected from
books, brochures and articles in addition to Internet.
Conclusion The business platform is a relevant and interesting model for company
analysis. It covers all areas of importance and there is a clear
connection between the aspects of the business platform and external
theories. It is expected, based on the literature study, that the business
platform is capable of achieving its intended purpose. (Less)
