I always have trouble forgetting things which are or could be key to the case (e.g., time value of money in break-even cases, patent life in pharma cases, or long-term price fluctuations in commodity cases). Where can I find a "laundry list" of considerations to keep in mind for different industries and/or case types? I'm not looking for a framework to memorize and apply blindly; I am just looking for a laundry list to aid my memory when I'm under pressure.

Thanks a lot!

Hi there,

Unfortunately, I never have seen such a list but I think it is wonderful that you are aware of what you are forgetting. My suggestion would be creating your own case log book and recording feedbacks and key learnings from your cases.
