Named one of 100 Leadership & Success Books to Read in a Lifetime by Amazon Editors The world's most trusted guide for leaders in transition 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. In this updated and expanded version of the international bestseller The First 90 Days, Michael D. 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. Each chapter also includes checklists, practical tools, and self-assessments to help you assimilate key lessons and apply them to your own situation. 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.… (més)

The author describes a small set of particular kinds of situations that a new leader might find themselves in, and then talks about how to make a transition in that situation. Unfortunately, none of his small set of situations seemed to apply to me. I had to force myself to read to the end, and didn't get as much out of it as I had hoped. ( )

I guess I'm reading an old version (2003) It's been updated in 2013

Aimed at managers in larger companies.

Major Theme
Critical success strategies for new leaders at all levels. Talks about lack of transition support despite how many leaders move into a new job in US corporations.

Success (or failure) in a new role is a combo of the person and the situation. There are several different situations for transitions but there are patterns. It's not like each one is unique.

Momentum in the 1st 90 days is important. You want to start virtuous cycles (not vicious cycles). It usually takes 6 months before a new leader is paying their way (3 months of deficit and 3 months climbing out of the hole). A good start can shorten that time.

Summary
Chpt 1 - Promote Yourself
Meaning make sure you've mentally moved into the new position. Make sure you're ready to let go of some strengths that may not be appropriate. Check in w/ old mentors & advisors etc. Plan the transition w/ your existing boss and watch out for saboteurs.

Good chart on self-examining what kinds of problems you like and don't like.

Chpt 2 - Accelerate Your Learning
Lots of good ways to get the lay of the land in your new place. People to check in with, lots of good questions to ask.

Chpt 3 - Match Strategy to Situation
Four major types of situations a new leader has to confront.
• Startup - focus energy on more doing / more offense
• Turnaround - focus energy on doing / defense
• Realignment - focus energy on learning / offense
• Sustaining Success - focus energy on learning / defense ( )

Standard advice, but presented well in an actionable way. Pragmatic and Machiavellian conceptually. The various tables are useful to pick and choose from for need. Good organization of the information to make a transition a little easier. Amazon is showing another update coming out early next year (2023). ( )

I read this before starting a new job, and overall found it useful. While most of the comments in the book are not revolutionary, it is useful to force yourself to read through them and think. Overall the book wants you to take away from it that you should start a new job learning the current culture, politics, procedures before trying to implement any change, and that it's on you to manage your relationship with your boss and direct reports, and that it's critical to think laterally, talking to people on different teams not just your own.

I have two criticisms for this book.

1. It is very much targeted at the Senior Manager/Executive level. For someone like me, coming in as a lead of a small team, the advice is not... that useful. I can't affect company wide change easily. There are far more lower/middle managers than executives and frankly the advice at that level is more useful. But everyone likes to think they'll be senior management one day so I understand why they'd target that.

2. The book really needs a summarized checklist. The advice is spread throughout the whole book, and a list at the end of no more than a sentence for each task/thing you should do would help organize the book. I kind of made one which I'll list below, but I know I missed some things.

* Immediately meet with your boss to set expectations for your new role
* Set up regular meetings with your boss if they do not to check in
* Setup meetings with your direct reports, boss(es), peers, and useful individuals on other teams to learn from them and get their thoughts on the company, what you should know, about their work, and build relationships
* Don't start making changes right away, learn the existing structures of the company and build support before you try to make changes
* Identify early wins which contribute to your long term goals, though really that means your *bosses* long term goals

Really the book is mostly expanding on those. ( )

This is a resource book that is full of useful counsel for leaders. However (ironically) I wouldn’t recommend it for leaders in the midst of transition. Reading this during my first 90 days in a new role was stressful. I wish I’d read it before so that some of these strategies were available for me to learn, prepare and use during the transition.

I also think the idea that failure is imminent without utilizing every idea outlined in the book is unhelpful - not that such an idea is ever explicitly stated but it is inherent in the introductory vignettes at the start of each chapter. I had to resort to skimming just so I didn’t bring a feeling of failure with me to work every day.

But I still give it 4 stars and I still really respect and value the guidance offered in this book. Just read it before day 1 or after day 90 ( )
