Book recommendations for professional services firms

I was recently approached by a young entrepreneur for advice about launching a professional services business. We had a great conversation, but one of my take-aways was to send him a list of “greatest hits” books on the topic. After some thought, this was the list I put together:

  • The Art of Managing Professional Services by Maureen Broderick

  • High Output Management by Andrew Grove

  • The Great Game of Business by Jack Stack

  • Flawless Consulting by Peter Block

  • Small Giants by Bo Burlingham

  • Traction by Gino Wickman

  • The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz

  • Pitch Anything by Oren Klaff

  • Resilience by Eric Greitens

If you’d suggest some others, feel free to drop them in the comments below.
