The First 90 Days

Michael D. Watkins

Overview

When starting a new leadership role, it's essential that you lay the foundations for success within the first 90 days. How you respond, lead, and interact in this period has a substantial impact on your likelihood of success.

As a leader, establishing your credibility early on can help you be more effective in your role. The 90-day framework aims to get new leaders to a break-even point as soon as possible — when they give back as much value as the company has invested into them.

Michael D. Watkins is a former associate professor at Harvard who has written various publications on leadership and the art of negotiation. His book The First 90 Days – which was first published in 2003 and updated in 2013 – has become a go-to guide for business leaders all over the globe. In this book, Watkins explains how best to manage a transition through a series of case studies and real-world examples.
