First Round Interview at Accenture

 
#1 First Round Interview at Accenture
06/07/2004 15:43

Asad

Hiya! I've got a first round interview with Accenture in a few weeks time. I'm doing the usual i.e. researching the company, their competencies, competitors. I feel I'm still not too comfortable with the case study and the role of an analyst.

No matter how many case studies I read, I feel I'll still feel I haven't got the skills to develop a framework wot fully solve one.

Can anyone with Accenture experience help me out?

I believe I have a reasonably analytical background i.e. BSc. Hon. Economics and Management + Masters in Marketing Management...

I understand that they are not expecting to be blown away by the interviewees in the case study analysis but was just wondering what the best course is to go about an unseen case study analysis, framework development including costing/budgeting and conclusions/solution.

I am hoping someone might be able to shed some light on some of their favourite case study areas/sectors.

Thanks a lot!

They want to see how you can think, not how many frameworks you know. You'll be interviewing alongside people with a diverse range of backgrounds, many of whom wouldn't know a framework if it hit them in the face but who could out-think all the other candidates. All they'll want to see you do, framework-wise, is to break the problem down into logical chunks, talk a bit about each one and then bring it all together into a sensible conclusion. Nothing more complicated than that. I got right through a series of interviews with all the top strategy players with nothing more than: profit = revenues - costs, revenues = price x volume, costs are either fixed or variable. My background's got nothing to do with business or finance. Do the example case studies on the websites of the top strategy firms - that'll be sufficient practice.
