MK asked on Mar 16, 2021

HI there, in few days, i have an interview with Siemens Gamesa (Germany) for Project manager role. In the final round, i will be provided 30 min to analyze teh case study (asked me to make assumptions in case of any questions), 30 min presentation, and last 30 min for discussion.

I am lost on what kind of case studies should i focus, as this is not a typical consultant role. Can anyone guide me through if you have any experience?

Hi there,

First, congrats and good luck!

I recommend the following:

  1. Remember that most casing tips apply here (i.e. be very clear+focused on the objective, ruthlessly cut out information that doesn't help you meet this objective/question, make sure to thinking + communicate in a structured way, etc. etc.)
  2. Practice/simulate this as much as possible beforehand...getting a coach to help you run through scenarios + how to react in inevitably challenging moments will do a world of good.

I have a number of written case I'd be more than happy to share with you! What I generally do with my candidates is, give them a written case x hours before our scheduled session (adjust # of hours based on the specific interview they're going to have), and then review their work during the session (as well as talk through tips+tricks to get better).

Hey MK!


To add some useful tips, I advise you to study Siemens tag and look through the info given there. Some actual cases might be found there! It will help you to focus more on the topic and to understand what to expect from, the interview.

If you have any specific questions about cases - write me a direct message!

Fingers crossed!

Good luck!

That is the definition of a written case interview, methodologies that are indeed becoming very fashionable nowadays as a way to interview!

Remember that the skillset tested is the same than in the "usual" cases, hence, all the practice you may have done totally plays in your favor.

One important point to add is the need to be very 80-20, structured and to the point, since the prep time is very short, so we need discipline with the analysis to have enaugh time to prep the communication strategy.

There are many many entries in thsi same Q&A regarding written cases, hence, I would recommend you to look with the keywords "written case"

Hope it helps!
