N2 - This paper explores how the use of a business model enables value creation in an Open Source Software (OSS) environment. Open Source offers one possibility for firms that are continuously looking for new opportunities and ways of organizing their business activities to increase the amount of value they can appropriate through their capabilities. We argue that this value can be attained by analysing value creation logic and the elements of business models. We demonstrate how value is created through business model elements and provide a list of questions that can help managers in their considerations with Open Source Software.
