This paper aims to shed light on how collaboration between project based independent and yet project interdependent organisations can use Business Model Innovation (BMI) to enable complex project execution efficient and effective. The empirical qualitative research took place from September 2017 to June 2018 with 4 enterprises through initial individual 1-day meetings and three joint 1-day network meetings for a nearshore wind park project.

The findings show that the BMI approach can be beneficial at the project level for complex nearshore projects. Traditionally BMI is perceived as a beneficial approach at the individual organisational level. However, when organisations have to collaborate within complex projects with many participating organisations over a longer timeframe requiring large investments the individual approach create boundaries instead of opening the understanding of collaborative project innovations. The findings show that it is possible to conduct BMI at the project level among the participating organisations for a more comprehensive understanding of the necessary coordination and cooperation issues, which are essential for efficient and effective project management execution. The findings thus enhance the organisational approach to project management.

Contributions are thus made to project management theory for an enhanced understanding to the organizational approach to project management. A contribution is also made to the practical project management execution within complex projects for a more thorough approach on BMI collaboration to support efficient and effective project execution.
