Background/Objectives: As for the consulting for the SMEs, of which the scale is not very big and the business is not that complicated, it is effective to base it on the business model and to suggest the measures to diagnose and solve the problems regarding the overall business cycle. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This study analyzes the documents on the business model and examines the possibility of a consulting tool by reconstituting them as well as examining technology commercialization from SME’s perspective. Findings: By analyzing the researches on the existing business models, this study clearly constitutes the relationships between strategies, dynamic capabilities, business models and business processing and suggests the consulting framework based on the business model. This study also suggests a consulting framework for ICT SMEs' technology commercialization which applies the consulting framework based on business model to the technology commercialization. Application/Improvements: Although the suggested consulting framework could be applicable to ICT SMEs' technology commercialization, it is still at the conceptual level.
