Operating Model versus Business Model

@Kathryn Pawley Steiner: I understand the business model defines the value creation process (a good template for this seems to be Osterwalder's work). I think the operating model describes the way the BM is implemented, but I can't find a template for this.
Weill and Ross suggest the Operating Model is based on process/data standardisation and integration, but is there more to consider?
What about distribution of the functions and organisation structure for example, is that included too?
