  • Conciseness

Key observations:

Cairn Energy’s 2013 business model concisely demonstrates the wide range of factors influencing the company’s value creation proposition. The readers obtain an understanding on how the company delivers material growth from a portfolio by creating, adding and realising value for a variety of core stakeholders.

Interestingly, Cairn Energy tries to differentiate between the value ‘created’, ‘added’ and ‘realised’, thereby recognising the different stakeholders and ways in which value is affected.
