You document what's there. You've already started that. Next you document what's deficient. Then you put together a plan that, in stages, makes things better.

I have hired five PhD's over the course of my career (maybe more, but five that I remember). All of the where hired based on what they did / what they could do and not on the basis of their theses. Granted my statistical sample is tiny, but there you go.

Going the speed of light is bad for your age.
