Hi,

I have a partner round interview with Deloitte Digital Studio delivery team for the role of a SC. I would like to understand what kind of questions should I expect? How should I go about preparing for the interview. I have been told that this could be a behavioral or a case study format, so be prepared for anything. The duration would be 30 minutes. Any lead would be of great help.

Thanks & Regards,

Kaustav

Hi,

You should be ready both for the conventional and digital cases. Also, You should be ready to talk about the relevant IT topics (Hint: I recommend reading the articles on the McKinsey / BCG / BIG 4 websites. Search for "agile", "Digital", etc)

Here is a list of potential topics you need to know. It is a full list and looks scary but they test a lot of these concepts depending on the particular role:

  • Cloud (cloud vs own servers pro and cons, uptime % SLAs, load balancing, etc)
  • Security (encryption basics, password change policy, cloud security and encryption on your computer)
  • Agile and development (Agile principles)
  • M&A and IT (Will it be one system or two systems? Is it "Adopt and go" approach or we take the best of both systems and create a new one? Integrate now, innovate later? Or Innovate now, when you have time?)
  • IT strategy and Digital transformation (Similar to M&A)
  • IoT (Mainly the use of IoT in operations - Process steps completion, measuring temperature, maintenance measurements, other measurements, predictive algorithms, etc)

Best,
