Executive assimilation expert Emily Bermes told the ExecuNet community, “The concept of a 100-day plan has executives relying on a plan they’ve created before they are really even in-role.”
Ditch the 100-day plan.
Planning before you have the facts and know the players, and the politics, isn’t really a good idea. You’ve got to be oriented and assimilated with a thoughtful assessment. If you bring in an idea – even a brilliant one – before people have a sense that you have an understanding of the history, context, relationships, why things are the way they are, it will fail. Too often executives start making changes too soon – all that does is create noise and chaos. It can easily take 90 days to develop a proper point of view. The more time you take to develop relationships, the more credibility you will have with the changes you would like to try.
Listen to Emily talk about her concerns with the 100-day plan in this excerpt from a session of ExecuNet Master Class.
