Yes, you have to apply for your “home” competence center. RB receives their projects and then they assign them to specific CCs according to the qualification. It doesn’t mean you will only get projects related to your CC, though as it depends on availiability etc. The cool thing is that you get a mentor in your CC which gives you good opportunities to further network. Also, it is not a big deal to change CCs, so don’t worry about if youre not sure which one to select, you can still change to another one later.

Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar

Solved 34.2k times
Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar Onlinestar, an online retailer of furniture and garden products (core business), has grown significantly in recent years as a result of an expansion of its product portfolio. The company mainly imports goods from Chinese manufacturers but also operates its own production of cat lavatories (special business) in Eastern Europe. The company sells its goods via Amazon and ebay, and recently via an online shop on its website. Despite this development, the financial ratios have deteriorated in recent years. In particular, gross profit margin decreased significantly. Combined with a significant increase in shipping costs, this led to a negative result for the first time in the recently ended fiscal year and a resulting strained financial situation. Against the background of expected stagnating sales for the current financial year, short-term action is required. The board of Onlinestar asks you for an analysis of the reasons for the negative result as well as a derived recommendation for action. As a consultant, you should bring in your knowledge in online trading and develop solutions. In addition, the management board would like to receive a sales and gross profit plan from you for the current financial year.
