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.

Very concise. Good 30 minutes spent.

If you want the top-line summary with the bottom line points of the book, this is a good place to go. I've been meaning to read this book for a few years, but each time I started it was long, boring, and dry. The summary is 30 minutes of concise information, and I can dig into the book at the points where I want more background on what is being conveyed. Worth a couple of bucks to get to the points!!
