In the January 24th issue, Fortune is running an excerpt from You're In Charge - Now What?: The 8 Point Plan by Thomas Neff and James Citrin.
The 8 Rules for the first 100 days include:

It looks like a good book for someone taking on a new role. I think it is stuff everyone know, but it is goood to think about them in the context of being a new position.
