Michael D Watkins shows you the way to climb strategic ladder within “The First 90 Days”

You've landed the job you've had your eye on for a while. Now the difficult part begins. Forget the idea of a honeymoon period. It's time to get to the hard work, right now, because the first 90 days of any job can mean everything. They can be the difference between a quick, linear path to a seat on the board of directors or years stuck in cubicle world, lunching at your desk, toiling for little reward. How to make your first 90 days count. “In The First 90 Days”, Harvard Business School professor Michael Watkins presents a road map for taking charge in the first 90 days of a new executive position. The first days in a new position are critical because small differences in actions can have a huge impact on long-term results. This book summary will equip executives with strategies and tools to get up to speed faster and achieve more sooner. Watkins reviews with readers how to diagnose a situation and understand its challenges and opportunities. The pressure on new leaders to hit the ground running has never been greater, and the likelihood and cost of failure is escalating. For three years he explored these issues by studying dozens of leadership transitions at all levels, by designing transaction acceleration programs for leading companies, and by developing an outline performance-support tool for new leaders. That work culminated in the writing of this book. In this hands-on guide, Watkins provides strategies for avoiding the most common pitfalls new leaders encounter and shows how individuals can protect themselves - emotionally as well as professionally - during what is often an intense and vulnerable period. He provides a road map for creating your own 90-day acceleration plan. Watkins points out the obvious by noting that as long as there have been leaders, there have been leadership transitions. The changing of the guard and the challenges it poses for the new leader are as old as human society. Those challenges have not gotten any easier given the complexity of modern organizations and the speed at which business is conducted. If you succeed in meeting these core challenges, you will have a successful transition. Failure to surmount any one of them, however, is enough to cause potentially crippling problems. Concise and actionable, this is the survival guide no new leader should be without. “The First 90 Days” should be incorporated into every company’s leadership development strategy, so that anyone making a transition in an organization can get up to speed quicker and smarter.
