Publisher's Summary

This is a summary of Michael D Watkin's The First 90 Days: Proven Strategies for Getting Up to Speed Faster and Smarter

Transitions are a critical time for leaders. In fact, most agree that moving into a new role is the biggest challenge a manager will face. While transitions offer a chance to start fresh and make needed changes in an organization, they also place leaders in a position of acute vulnerability. Missteps made during the crucial first three months in a new role can jeopardize or even derail your success.

Watkins offers proven strategies for conquering the challenges of transitions - no matter where you are in your career. Watkins, a noted expert on leadership transitions and adviser to senior leaders in all types of organizations, also addresses today's increasingly demanding professional landscape, where managers face not only more frequent transitions but also steeper expectations once they step into their new jobs.

By walking you through every aspect of the transition scenario, Watkins identifies the most common pitfalls new leaders encounter and provides the tools and strategies you need to avoid them. You'll learn how to secure critical early wins, an important first step in establishing yourself in your new role.

Whether you're starting a new job, being promoted from within, embarking on an overseas assignment, or being tapped as CEO, how you manage your transition will determine whether you succeed or fail. Use this book as your trusted guide.

Available in a variety of formats, this summary is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the current time to devour the full book. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer.

    "Not A Lot of Take-a-ways"

    I suppose it was a decent summary, but there weren't a lot of takeaways for me. I imagine the complete version has more substance.

    "Some good stuff but not enough"

    A few useful nuggets of wisdom, but overall too general to be of much help. Secure early wins, prioritize, get to know your team - really? come on! Not bad for the price or the time commitment but read the full book or one specifically for your profession is you need anything more than a superficial dive.

    Story
    "more for organisational structure"

    no relatable stories
    focuses on process rather than relationships
    weak start strong middle chapters in book, stick with it for the 60% nuggets contained
