Hi there!

I am currently looking for people who also prepare for their remote first-round BCG interview (Germany/general). The online case study, which will be taken at home, has a different length and number of questions. Feel free to contact me on the platform or via Mail so as to share insights and advise :)

Best,

Phillip

Hey Phillip,

I'll send you a PM, but just remember that the same key principles apply here as to casing and real-world consulting

1) Understand the context/prompt - Make sure you understand the scenario. How does the company operate and make money? Who are their customers and main competitors? What is their value proposition?

2) Understand the objective - i.e. what is actually being asked of you. What is the problem. You need to be clear on this to move onto #3

3) Quickly process information, and focus on what's important - Take a lot of information and the unknown, find the most logical path, and focus on that. There will be way more information than you need...leverage #2 to hone in on the exhibits that matter...leverage hypotheses here

4) Structure your thinking and communications - Ensure you have enough time/brainpower to write a clear reocmmendation. Only use the items in #3 that tell your story the most effectively. Ideally, you already have a view as to your story before you start steps #3 and 4

Good luck!
