3.0 out of 5 stars Very readable but missing critical inforamtion, April 15, 2011
This review is from: Business Model Generation: A Handbook for Visionaries, Game Changers, and Challengers (Paperback)
I really liked how the book is laid out. It is very readable and is definitely not boring. The information has been gathered by practical experts and therefore is quite useful. I also liked the logical structure of the book. The chapters flow very well. We used it for a few products we are developing and found very insightful gaps in our business model.

However, in the process of implementing the book, we also realized it does not talk about two important topics:
1. Competition
2. Risks

These are very important to any business plan and I am quite surprised why these topics are missing. We added these sections for our use. Perhaps the authors left this out for the second edition :)

The model in the book is an oversimplified mash-up of Porter's Five Forces and a Lean Manufacturing process flow. It's not surprising that they left off a couple of key areas.
