I've been search for resources and came across this new resource from Marc Cosentino of Case In Point as the only resource really focusing on government, nonprofit, and public sector. https://amazon.com/dp/0986370754 . I've used it and it provides some great insights into how recruiters evaluate candidates as well as some actual transcripts of cases that helped me better understand the industry and craft answers. I was wondering what else might be out there?
Does anyone have any good resources for public sector/ government, or nonprofit consulting?
I am not sure whether any particular source specifically focused on the public sector but many MBA case books have public sector cases. You may want to check them.
Also if you did not solve that already, Diconsa case is one of my favorites available on the internet.
These types of cases are actually pretty traditional, especially for McKinsey. The reason why people think that they are rare is that the casebooks (that are in general not a good source of cases) do not have enough of them.
Feel free to reach me if you need preparation for these cases!
To provide a bit of structure, there are several types of non-profit cases:
- Factors influencing the price (What are the factors influencing the price of oil? Factors influencing the price of real estate?)
- Macroeconomic cases (How will you improve life expectancy in a particular city? How will you decrease the unemployment?)
- Public sector non-profits (Increasing the revenues of a museum; increasing the revenues from tourism in a city)
- Redesigning the processes (How will you develop a new anti-monopoly regulation?)
- Non-profit investments (A billionaire is building a new school. What are the factors to look at?)
