Is this product the right choice for you?

I used to be in your seats a few years ago, willing to enter the strategy consulting world. And when I was a candidate preparing for the interviews, I was quite disappointed by the case solving guides and frameworks in most preparation books.

To that end, I have developed with Bilal, a BCG colleague, a comprehensive guide to the most challenging part of a consulting case interview: structuring.

This guide is a list of frameworks covering most consulting cases, that we tested and refined on many candidates to help you master the decisive first minutes of a case interview: setting a perfect case structure to solve the business case.

Master the Case Structure Part of the Interview in All Consulting Interviews

I used to be in your seats a few years ago, willing to enter the strategy consulting world.

And when I was a candidate preparing for the interviews, I was quite disappointed by the case solving guides and frameworks in most preparation books. The existing frameworks were not always helpful:

  • Absence of case cracking logic: Available frameworks were more a list of modules i.e. market, product, customer ... but without the logic on how to connect them to crack the case
  • Lack of insights: Explanations on how to use the frameworks were limited
  • Irrelevance: Frameworks were often not applicable or relevant.

To that end, I have developed with Bilal, a BCG colleague a comprehensive guide to the most challenging part of a consulting case interview: structuring.

This guide is a list of frameworks covering most consulting cases, that we tested and refined on many candidates to help you master the decisive first minutes of a case interview: setting a perfect case structure to solve the business case.

Your case structure forms indeed the interviewer’s first impression of your preparedness, sets the atmosphere for your upcoming performance, and lays the groundwork for asking the right questions and ultimately cracking the case.

With Break Into Consulting: Frameworks I wish I knew, you will master the 8 predominant problem-based cases you will face during interviews:

  • Growth
  • Profit decline
  • Pricing
  • Market entry
  • M&A
  • Private equity
  • Competitive response
  • Response to a new entrant

Written in plain English, this guide will help you instantly improve your case structuring skills and to immediately solve cases like a professional consultant

I would highly recommend this to anyone who's in the early and even middle stage of preparing for consulting, just anyone who wants to hone their frameworks. It has all the important elements in constructing MECE issue trees. And you can build upon it your own version without racking your brain.

Overall good value. The verbiage could be made more clear and explanatory (for example: 1. M and A: Financial synergy by reduction in working capital? 2. Trade sales in Pvt Equity...)
