Bo Burlingham

Bo Burlingham is the author most recently of Finish Big: How Great Entrepreneurs Exit Their Companies on Top (Portfolio/PenguinRandomHouse). He previously authored Small Giants: Companies That Choose To Be Great Instead of Big, which was a finalist for the 2006 Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year award. That book inspired the Small Giants Community, which he cofounded with Paul Spiegelman. He has written three other books with coauthors, including two with Jack Stack, CEO of Springfield Holdings Corp. and the pioneer of open-book management. The first of them, The Great Game of Business, was named one of 100 best business books of all time. The second, A Stake in the Outcome, has been called “the first management  classic of the new millennium.” He also wrote Street Smarts: An All-Purpose Tool Kit for Entrepreneurs with Norm Brodsky, the founder of CitiStorage and pillar of the Greenpoint-Williamsburg community in Brooklyn. A 33-year veteran of Inc. magazine, where he has written a monthly column with Brodsky for the last two decades, he recently left and joined Forbes magazine as a contributor.
