Recommended Reading for Every CFO

Recommended by Justin Winchiu

With back to school just around the corner, there’s no better time to think about continuing education, and it doesn’t require going to class. Justin Winchiu, Multiview’s CFO, recommends three books for senior leaders or financial executives wanting to gain a fresh perspective, or discover more tools and ideas to succeed.

If you don’t have time to read a book, we found some links to Amazon’s audiobooks! Just another way we are client obsessed.

3 Must-Read Books For CFOs

As a leader, it helps to get familiar with broader business concepts to understand what it takes for a business to succeed. The book gives an overview of people, thought, and action decisions that apply to all companies. There’s a companion version of this book for leaders in nonprofit or social sectors that explains how to apply the concepts to organizations in the social sector.

Unlike the first recommendation, Good to Great, The Goal is a more tactical book about gradually working through and introducing specific organizational changes.  This book is a must-read for leaders who work in the manufacturing industry covering performance measurement, plant operational efficiency and productivity. However, the concepts can apply to any business that prefers a systematic way to approach and solve problems.

Biography from a business leader

Rather than recommending a title, here’s a genre recommendation. Read a biography of a business leader that you respect. Why? When you make important decisions, you can learn from someone who has been in your position or a similar position. Understanding the context of the leader’s decisions, the options they considered, and the consequences of their choices can help to gain some fresh perspective.

Here are some of the biographies I’ve enjoyed over the years:
