The first three months for a new boss is a critical period, writes Matt Regan for Management Today. As the author points out, first impressions count, and a clear and realistic 100-day plan can help you prioritise your time in a key period.
The author emphasises that flexibility of your 100-day plan is essential. You need “a plan to plan”, and instead of expecting to have all the answers from the start, your plan can help you find the time for drawing up strategy and setting key deadlines for you and your team.
Regan insists that being realistic about goals and deadlines is crucial. Remember that you can’t do everything immediately, so be practical about what you can achieve.
