*This is a guide on the fastest, most efficient way to gain the achievement – other way are also valid but they have been slower in my experience.
Once You have completed the Thieve’s Guild quest line you must:

- Quicksave (F5)
- Ask Delvin for a numbers job
- If the quest is not for Markarth, Solitude, Whiterun or Windhelm – Load quicksave (F9) and ask again
- Fast travel to city of quest
- Run to quest marker
- Press E on book
- Fast-travel back to ragged Flagon
These steps need to be repeated five times for each city. Once you have completed five missions in one of the cities then Delvin will have a special mission for you.*
*Once you have completed the special mission for a city do no do any more quests in that city, just reload your quicksave for another.
As each special mission is completed you will see the Ragged Flagon develop as the guild regains its power.
Complete 5 missions in each city for 20 total as well as the 4 special missions making 24; Then you will be told to talk to Brynjolf who will finally declare you as leader of the thieve’s guild
