New team members need a short term plan to learn how to navigate their responsibilities.

Within the first week, the projects should be set up and a small change deployed—ideally, this happens even within the first day. Within the first 30 days, the team’s planning and deployment processes should be well-understood, and at 90 days the relevant codebases and architecture should be at least navigable. This plan can further vet new hires 1Q3B.
