In this video interview, Randy MacLean discusses business model planning with Benson Garner. Benson talks about the concept of a "Business Model Canvas" and explains how it provides a visual representation of what goes into a good business model.

They also discuss the idea of companies truly focusing on what they do best, including the story of a telecom company that decided to outsource its infrastructure.
