Hi all,

I had a restructuring case during my interview with one of the Tier 2 consulting firm.

The question is like "How to successfully sell the new product (i.e. software) through restructuring"

At the end of the case, the interviewer told me that i considered only qualitative aspect but not quantitative aspect (fiannce). So i am confused how to approch this kind of case and have 2 questions:

1) What can be the clarifying question to ask ?

2) What is the framework ?

Thanks !!

I would say the first clarifying question you would need to understand prior to diving into any quantitative (or qualitative) components of the case would be to understand what is meant by "restructuring" and the wider situation faced by the software company in this case. Once we understand that further we can start thinking about a relevant framework to use.

Dear A,

In the typical restructuring cases, first you need to focus on the cost-side and identify levels on how to reduce the costs, afterwards you can switch the framework and analyse the quantity problem on the review side. So therefore I would rather recommend you to go for the second option.

Hope it helps you,

Good luck,

André
