Challenges

Let’s say you are efficient and skilled.  Let’s also say it takes you 6 weeks to collect and lock down your project requirements. What do you do if you only have 3 weeks?  And on top of that you are new to the organisation and need a week to get settled in and learn who is who and what is what.
