How would you explain a complex technical issue to a client?
Overview of answers
I would follow a general structure of a story with a beginning, middle, and end. The beginning would be for me to explain the goal of the technology in use. The middle then would be me to explain the complications of using the technology that prevents it to achieve its intended use. Finally, the end of the technical issue storyline is possible avenues of the impacts of the issue, possible solutions, or alternatives.
Start by explaining basic key words, then proceed on to give details about the technical issue.
I would break it down into easy to understand language without being patronising.
On top of the insights already shared in the post, the "Integrated FIT guide for MBB" has been recently published in PrepLounge´s shop (https://www.preplounge.com/en/shop/tests-2/integrated-fit-guide-for-mbb-34)
It provides an end-to-end preparation for all three MBB interviews, tackling each firms particularities and combining key concepts review and a hands-on methodology.
