Abstract

This paper introduces a new developed validation management tool for business models using ABCD Model Analysis. We define the ABCD Management as “Achievement Because Continuous Development” and the validation tool based on the set of steps i.e. Analyse, Build, Check, and then Decide. The core of the validation tool development is formed by combination of well-known quality management tools: Deming Cycle, RADAR logic and using the application of statistical tools: structural equation modelling, SPSS and AMOS. The approach used in this paper is to extend the well-known quality management methods combined with the available Structural Equation Modelling and AMOS for building and validating the business excellence models. The design of ABCD Model Analysis is based on a new method of direct and/or indirect path valuation that divides relationships paths into categories based on ABCD alphabetical coding, and provide a systematic, sequential manner and logical view based on ABCD rule of thumb that enable the analysing process to take place with ease and accuracy prior to and during the validation process. The study shows that the ABCD Model Analysis is a very useful management tool for validation due to its systematic, simple, easy to remember, implement and to refine. In addition, the Path Analysis in the ABCD Model is a better version of the known Path Analysis techniques.
