Good morning all, Just wondering what resources people use for learning about business without wasting time learning the through their own experience? I have a business manufacturing detergents and plastic bottles, as well as a sizeable import/export arm to the business. I feel we are now heading from being a small business to a medium sized business. However, i find myself too often in the situation where when im looking at how to grow the business its often an educated guess at what to do next. Whilst i know there is no fixed blueprint out there to get me to the next stage, i am sure there there must be resources in what things to consider, what options are possible etc. I find most books on the internet are either gimmicky rubbish, or related to the tech industry. I have looked at MBA's but not sure what the value will be against a 30-50k investment. Online forums seem to be the go to place to find advice from real experience, but are often thin on details for obvious reasons Any recommendations for books that will help a manufacturing business grow? Whether it be financial/accounting related, lean methods or sales. I recently read "Distribution Channels - Julian Dent" and for me this was a real eye opener in how to organise our company internally, to offer a better sales package to our clients. It also helped us be more financially lean. Recommendations?
