This case is designed to address the need for cases that:
1) Mimic higher-level interviews that are less structured (Project Lead, Engagement Manager, Principal, Director, specialist/expert hire track, etc.)
2) Relate to Tech/IT
This is a brainstorming or unstructured case based on a real company. This case could be seen across a range of consultancies, but particularly those focused in Tech (i.e. EY, IBM, Deloitte, BCG Platinion, McKinsey Digital).
Let’s say we’re working with a large Tech company (i.e. FB, Apple, Microsoft etc.). They are interested in getting into the low-code iBPMS space. This is a space where pseudo-code is used to deploy large-scale process-based IT applications rapidly (in months, not years).
In particular, they’re looking at a company called Roma, which is one of the leaders in the space.
What are your thoughts here?
You can clarify the following (if asked)
The candidate should, naturally, proceed with the biggest question: Is this a market we even want to be involved in?
The candidate should then recognize that the next order of business is to evaluate the company itself.
At this point in the case, the candidate’s brainstorming abilities, as well as real-world IT knowledge, are to be truly tested.
