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:
  1. Listen
  2. Resist the savior syndrome
  3. Keep it simple
  4. Hit pause
  5. Look for quick wins
  6. Spell it out
  7. Don't dis your predecessor
  8. Give feedback

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.
