You'll feel tempted to overhaul and start fresh. But there's so much you don't know. Rather than risk moving too fast too soon, spend your first months observing, listening, and learning. Keep a log of everything you question. To know what's critical and what's clutter, lean on those with institutional knowledge and memory. In short, be humble and grow into the job. Take small steps so your employees have some continuity. You'll have time to leave your fingerprints as you mature.
