need to give someone practice case, how do BCG questions differ from McK?
Hi all, just a quick question. A friend (engineer, master's deg.) has asked me to give him a practice case for his BCG interview. I myself am a recent post-graduate hire for one of the big consulting companies, but have not started yet. I know for example, how McK cases are like -- how should I modify the questions to be more like BCG? (I didn't get any interviews with them)
For example, the McK interview usually goes something like:
-- small talk, hellos, resume chat
-- tell me about a time you had to use leadership skills to solve a difficult problem
-- case portion, a company is thinking of adopting this new technology, what general issues can you identify to be examined?
-- ok, you mentioned production issues. Here are some numbers about their production capacity, can you tell me how the new technology will affect their profit margin?
-- what initial thoughts do you have for the CEO this afternoon?
So I'm basically trying to come up with something for him to practice realistically for BCG. One thing I noticed is that McK interview was not very framework or typical case-based. Is BCG more? Somewhere I read that with BCG you will be "driving" the case more, like having to ask, "is it this factor or that factor", "ok, can you tell me more about the segmentation of that". Is that right?
Thanks for your help in advance!
