Recommended Documents by Business Topic

UPDATE: This article will no longer be updated.  All updates are now being made directly to our Business Toolkits section.  

Due to the rapid growth of our documents library, we have developed a less manual way of organizing our documents.  We have organized documents into Business Toolkits, where each toolkit is focused on a specific business project or business concept.  Each of the topics listed below in the article has now been formed into an individual business toolkit.  As of 4/24/2015, there are over 350+ business toolkits.  You can peruse them all here: www.flevy.com/business-toolkits.

* * * *

documents_examplesWe have close to a thousand documents on Flevy and that number is growing each week.  Sifting through the documents to find the best ones for your specific business issues can be a time consuming process.

In this article, I’ve compiled recommended documents organized by specific business topic.  The topics are organized alphabetically.  However, documents within each topic are listed in no particular order.  There may also be some cross-listing of the same document across multiple categories, where applicable.

This will be a working document.  For your convenience, I will maintain a last update date below.

LAST UPDATE: 3/6/2015

Be sure to also check out Flevy’s Business Toolkits.  Each toolkit is comprised of multiple documents that, when used together, provide a comprehensive and holistic framework for a project or business activity (e.g. Pricing Strategy, Focus Interviews).
