Hey Preplounge community, I'm preparing for my Mckinsey first round and BCG final round. As per my understanding of the case structure, which is a criterion that you apply in order to answer or reach the main question or objective.
One thing that is confusing me during cases is the interviewer is looking for a structure on how to solve this case that involves different known steps(ex: revenue case, known steps), but frequently in non-conventional cases, the structure is just a pool of ideas that might be causing the main issue without an obvious endpoint to answer this quesiton. How would you go about knowing which type of model to use in terms of writing this structure? Pool of ideas vs known steps
A hypothesis that I have is that the structure in the Mckinsey Style cases is usually relied upon less after presenting it thus it would allow you to pool ideas and not have a solid criterion to answer the question vs candidate led where you have to make sure that the structure at the beginning can lead you to answer the case
