I’d split it into 3 buckets and put a plan for 90 days and beyond with specific goals. Good luck! 1. Relationships -senior leadership: learn names and reach out if relevant (for example regional leader) -account -sector -competency -up and down and peer 2. People -talent system - doing rivals, timelines, etc -counselor structures - who’s yours, will you have any 3. Operations - learn CRM or sales system - how do you create an opp? -learn how the firm manages and prices deals and all that goes with it - what margin is acceptable? What do you use to price a deal? When do cost and bill rates increase? How do you open an engagement code? Etc -resourcing

Suggest catching up with everyone, PPMD-C, 1-1.

By all means, take the meetings - but also breathe and feel it out. A lot of people join and try and win the race in the first year - at every level on up. Do your job, meet good people, but don’t try and win the game in the first quarter.
