I read a lot of business books. I've read some that were instantly forgettable. Yet some are so thought provoking and useful that I refer to them most months in my work as a consultant and advisor. So here are the books that I most frequently recommend to clients: Scaling...
Decisions control the flow of work in your business. Pay attention to how and when they're made as well as who decides about what.
Chefs use mise en place to reduce future complexity. Founders and leaders in scaling businesses can do the same.
Two cognitive biases affect how we understand issues and take decisions. Take better decisions by minimising them.
Two types of friction slow down businesses. Understanding it properly accelerates business growth.
Being deliberate about how power is distributed and used is vital for scaling a business. Without that focus you'll end up with unhelpful informal power structures that impede scaling.
