Abstract
A business model is a representation of an organization with a particular point of view. It is common to find different types of models to describe the business. However, methods to create business models representing an economic point of view have emerged over the last years in the scientific community. The reason for this is that business specialists need to improve the economics understanding to define more efficient business strategies and to provide an alignment between business and information technology systems. The goal of this paper is to describe the design of an experiment to compare two methods to specify economic values (e3value and value-driven development), considering both the theoretical and practical aspects of these methods. Essentially, our experiment design allows us to predict the acceptance of a particular method in practice, based on the effort of applying the method, the quality of the artifacts produced, and the user perceptions with regard to the quality of the method.
