7 Books to Read If You Want a Systematized Business That Runs Without You Successfully

This is a fabulous list of books on business process and workflow. I’ve read several and recommended them to others. I just downloaded a couple of more, including the Checklist Manifesto, which sounds like something that will be helpful in this stage of my business.

  1. It’s not on the list, but Managing the Design Factory: A Product Developer’s Toolkit is one of those “game-changing” books that makes you re-think your system.

    It’s an oldie, but goodie. It’s all about how to use product development to compete in dynamic markets. It shows you how to design your design process, get better feedback, measure the right things, and ultimately build better products: better, faster, and cheaper (where quality is the firm foundation.)

  2. I’ve read the first 3 books in this list (The 4-Hour Workweek, The E-Myth and Work The System) and highly recommend them.

    I’m wondering if anyone has read any of the other 4? If so, would you commend them? They are: Built to Sell, The Checklist Manifesto, Traction and Get Your Business to Work.

    • Joshua, I read The Checklist Manifesto a few years ago and found it fascinating. If I recall, there was a lot of description of process, plus anecdotes (many in the health care arena). I enjoy learning how human behavior and decisions are driven by process, so I liked the book. Others might find that detail tedious.
