Improvements in the First 90 Days

Job interviewInterview Question: What specific improvements can you make in the first 90 days?

For some, the right answer is a sweeping list of changes designed to tighten things, improve process, etc. For many the right answer is a non-answer: I won’t know until I spend a few weeks to a few months learning what is going on; what’s right and what’s wrong and how to fix it.

You first need to gauge what your needs may be and what information you’ve provided in the interviewing process that would translate into the needs for improvements. Even after all of that most of us would want someone to learn by seeing and experiencing vs. acting based on what they’ve been told is true. A healthy mix of speculation and caution may be the best recipe for this response.
