Deloitte's written case study round, over email?

Hi,

Has anyone worked on a case interview where the question/ problem was sent to you over email and then you had to propose the solution in writing and send it back to Deloitte over email..and if they liked it, they would invite you to discuss it in person? Has anyone gone through a similar process, either with Deloitte or other management consulting firms?

I would like to understand the kind of problem statements you had (for my practice) and how you went about answering it!

Hi there,

Consulting companies may send cases over e-mail during the very first stages of the interview. There’s no much difference in the content of the work you will be conducting, but it means you will not be able to influence the situation on a real-time basis. So you definitely want to make sure that you will write your e-mail properly and will be taken seriously. I would recommend to be very precise and strictly on point. A very brief, restrained, and well-structured e-mail will be more appropriate in this case than vague and wordy. Pay attention to the details.

All in all, you just need to apply the techniques you already know from solving the standart cases, + 80-20, time management, create a nice structure, and be correct in your math!

If you have any other questions - feel free to text me!

Solved 72.0k 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.
