While in the midst of a job search, I've been looking for material (in addition to MT of course!) that would help me be productive/effective and found this book by Watkins (HBS).
The first 90 days is his attempt to model (called the Transition Acceleration Model) transitions from one role to another, so that a professional can "break even" and start making money for their employer before the 6-month expected time period (the new employee is expected to stop consuming value after 90 days, hence the name of the book).
I've only gotten to the 2nd chapter so it's too early to say how useful/applicable this is to the "real world", but it seems to be a lot of theory and academic research so far, and I'm a bit discouraged.
Has anyone else heard of/read this book? Just curious to see if it gets better later on.
I guess I'll keep reading either way (these books aren't cheap!), but I'm a bit disappointed so far.
