I want to gauge the most appropriate way to layout the entire problem solving structure structure for a case question which balances speed/efficiency and detail in the proposed structure. E.G. for a market entry case, I may lay out a structure as follows:
1. Value driver tree to answer key client question (e.g. break even point within given time horizon) - Investment Costs, Incremental Profits, dissagregated into Incremental Revenue + Costs, further dissagregated into Incremental Volumes/Pricing + Fixed/Variable Costs etc
2. Available Capability (cash, operations, logistics etc)
3. Risk Management (regs, brand equity, competitive response etc).
I would then want to map qualitative drivers to the value tree for Break even point. E.G. customer segmentation, purchasing intentions,price sensitivity etc to pricing, total market size, likely competitive market share, customer segmentation size/growth rate etc to volumes, segmentation of investment costs/FC/VC based on client industry etc.
Should ALL of this information (value driver tree and qualitative mapping) be laid out in the initial structure for ALL cases, and if so, what is the best way to display this all visually in 1 page, and get this down in 1 minute or so?!
