Looking for partners to practice setting up MECE issue trees

Jan fragte am 17. Sep 2017 - 1 Antwort

Hi folks,

I have practiced quite a lot of cases and would say of myself that I crack almost every case presented to me. However, in one of my last interviews I was being told that my structure still looks more like a laundry list than a proper case structure.

It seems to me that in the beginning, they all want to see proper issue trees like this one here:

Therefore:

Does anybody...

  1. ...have or know a great resource that focuses on the creation of these MECE issue trees?
  2. ...have best-practices on how to train it best?
  3. ...would like to practice together the setting up of great issue trees?

I am looking forward to receiving your replies.

Best,

Jan

Hey Jan,

Definitely following-up this conversation as I'm having the same issues. What I somehow find a bit helpful is to do a post-mortem of the case after having read the solution and draw a decision tree that would have gotten you to the desired outcome the most efficiently.
But similar to you, not quite there yet and I need to do more reading and practice.

Best of luck.

Ben
