In transitioning from hierarchal corporate governance to platform governance mechanisms, smart cities need to develop new models for managing the dynamics of platform governance between city divisions. By conceptualizing smart cities as a platform of platforms, this paper uses the business model approach to develop a platform governance framework in the smart city context. The contribution of this paper is to illustrate how the business model approach can enhance better communication between different layers of smart cities and thus improve smart city development.
