people working in corporate jobs: when you inherit a project, or part of a project, what is the best way to ask for all the relevant details on the project so that you don't keep putting your foot in your mouth or doing unnecessary work that is voided by decisions made before you arrived?

I have a sneaking suspicion that "put the project details in the bag" will not go well

@eletious Wouldn't it be reasonable to ask where the documentation is kept or something like that?

(I mean the answer is always "what documentation?" but it's fun to pretend)


@swaggboi See, I asked that, and all I got were 2 PDFs
