The present paper presents a business model analysis of Robert Bosch. The analysis is focused on three components of a business model: the strategic component, the market component, and the value-added component.

The components are first viewed and analyzed regarding their contents on a theoretical basis, followed by a closer study of these in the context of Robert Bosch.

It is found that the strategic component plays an important role in the business model of Robert Bosch. It is determined by the “House of Orientation”, which contains the company’s vision, mission, values, and core competencies.

The analysis of the market component shows that the product supply of Robert Bosch is divided into the three business sectors Automotive Technology, Industrial Technology, and Consumer Goods and Building Technology. Using such a supply structure, Robert Bosch successfully serves both corporate and private customers, placing great emphasis on customer satisfaction. The largest share of revenues is generated in the Automotive Technology sector. Similarly, splitting the revenue by regions shows that the European region, especially Germany, generates the greatest revenues.

The value-added component of the business model of Robert Bosh is represented by the Bosch Business System, which is a systematic methodology supporting the management and development of value generating processes. The identification of physical, human, intellectual, and financial resources is also part of this component
