The First 90 Days was cited in this article about executive exit strategies entitled, “Leaving Well: Why the Last 90 Days Matter.” The author makes the point that while much emphasis is placed on advising leaders in their initial months in role, little advice is offered on how to leave an organization despite the fact that more often than not executives are remembered for their departures.
