Why structuring drills?

If you had to choose one element that is the most important and fundamental criteria of success in your case interviews it would probably be structuring.

Maintaining a structure means that you solve the question with a clear step-by-step approach that you communicate actively towards your interviewer. A good structure is the most important part of a case interview as it is the underlying base of your whole approach and argumentation. It is also the main reason why candidates fail their case interviews. A common mistake that candidates make is that they try to apply standardized frameworks to any case they are given. Instead, you should solve each case by creating a framework specifically tailored to its needs – as you would do as a consultant on the job.

MECE is a best practice method to lay down a robust structure for your case interview. The following structuring drills help you to practice exactly that crucial skill to pass your case interview successfully.

  • Practice structuring complex case prompts and business problems by using MECE buckets and sub-buckets.
  • Share and compare your answer with the community and upvote structures that you think are best.
  • Evaluate your own structure based on the top answer and continue improving your structuring skills!
