[...] Pettigrew's model was based on convergence. The convergence impacted the business models of players who must anticipate and adapt to change. The change is part of the model on secondary activities (e.g. access to broadband Internet in airplanes, Wi-Fi service stations) or radical sectors in the heart of the convergence (computer, telecom and media). Convergence plays on the "frontiers" of companies. Andrew Pettigrew believes that the boundaries structure the business. Recent focus on the activities and skills form the heart of their business.

The intensity of the convergence depends directly on the importance of restoring the value chain towards new services for customers. Thus there is a major impact on the business model of companies in the services sector. [...]
[...] Reality impacts theoretical convergence identified above and can be highlighted through three major indexes: -The passage of certain activities at the heart of business enterprises at their periphery, due to the life cycle of tenders and the recomposition of the value chain. -The intensity of cooperation between companies, with enhanced global reach. -The definition of legitimacy both internally (bringing the good word?) and externally (which is legitimate in relation to markets, customers).
