If you haven’t heard this expression before, you probably will at some point.
Especially in consulting, when you’re put on a project and expected to get up to speed very quickly.
Such as: understanding business processes, who the internal and client team members are/how to work with them, what decisions have been made, what technologies are being used, the timelines and deadlines, your responsibilities, etc.
The list goes on…
Often more work, than time allowed, and usually it’s not a direct deliverable, rather just a part of you joining.
The ability to take it all in, understand how to prioritize, and not let it stress you out it key.
