Deloitte Interview Process - Round 2: What to Expect?

I'd like a bit of clarification on the Deloitte interview process I'm currently involved in. I'm an experianced consultant with many years spent at IBM where I managed a portfolio of enterprise customers. My Deloitte interview experience doesn't seem in alignment with what others have shared as a general process on preplounge. My first call was the recruiter screen ('fit test'?). My second interview call is one day away, with a Partner focused on PLM. As far as I know, interview 2 is simply another call, no mention of a case interview as others have stated was their experiance. If given the green light, I'm expected in Chicago next week for the actual 'live' case interview. I asked the recruiter to share the structure of that 3rd meeting, but did not hear back. Entering a discussion without knowing what to expect makes it hard to prepare. Anyone else experiance similar?

Hello Rebecca,

Being an experienced consultant can happen that the company will test only your "fit" with the company, trusting your knowledge. It's likely, however, that they ask you to solve a business case during the last live interview.

Deloitte Consulting case: Footloose

Solved 71.9k times
Deloitte Consulting case: Footloose Duraflex is a German footwear company with annual men’s footwear sales of approximately €1 b. They have always relied on the boot market for the majority of their volume. In this market they compete with three other major competitors. In the fall of 2019, Badger – one of Duraflex’s competitiors – launched a new line of aggressively priced work boots. The strong success of this line has caused Duraflex’s management to re-evaluate their position in work boots. With limited additional resources, the management must now decide if they should focus their efforts on competing with Badger in the work boot sector, or allocate their resources on further strengthening their position with casual boots. The management team approached you and asked for your advice. In order to advise them on their future work boot strategy please prepare first some insights regarding market size and competitive landscape.
