This article integrates the business model concept with an understanding of industry recipes to show how competing business models can co-exist in a competitive market. Drawing on data from the English Premier League, we show that alternative models – based on the acquisition of talent on one dimension and the internal development of shared team experience on the other – lead to differing value creation and value capture outcomes. Drawing on the time series nature of our data, we also show that transitioning between business models can involve a decline in performance (which may be temporary), and draw some implications for managers faced with the challenge of changing their business models.
