How to get into management consulting

Download to read offline

Getting into consulting is one of the most difficult tasks. It’s not only very selective but also quite tough and long recruitment process. You will have at least 5 job interviews, spend on average 2-3 months in recruiting process and your chances of succeeding will be around 5-10%. I will help you significantly boost the odds in your favor.

This course will help you prepare for the cases that you will be asked to solve during the job interviews with consultants. I will improve your knowledge and skills in analysis through a series of practical cases. It is based on my 11 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting companies and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, improvement and turn-arounds in biggest companies from FMCG, SMG, B2B sector that I worked for. I have participated in over 200 recruitments and the materials in this course will encompass all the tricks that you should use during the interview. On the basis of what you will find in this course and I have trained over 100 business analysts who now are Investment Directors, Senior Analyst, Directors in Consulting Companies, Board Members etc.
There is little theory – mainly examples, a lot of tips from my own experience as well as other notable examples worth mentioning. My intention is that thanks to the course you will know:
1. How to approach any type of cases that you may come across in the job interview?
2. How to apply the most useful concepts and methods used later by consultants in their work?
3. How to be efficient during the interview?
4. How the consultant minds works?

  19. 19. 19 Useful Techniques that you should master before the interview
  20. 20. 20 Bottom-up approach
  21. 21. 21 …the one you will for sure use is bottom-up approach where you go from single (typical) consumer to market research ▪ First you should imagine the typical users ▪ Then you should try to guess his consumption level ▪ By estimating the number of typical users you and their consumption level you get the rough size of the market
  22. 22. 22 …sometimes it makes sense to divide markets in segments and estimate them separately (i.e. average and typical users, women and man, people in different age groups or segmentation by lifestyle) Segment A Segment B
  23. 23. 23 …lets do a simple example. Imagine that you want to make an application for franchised restaurants ▪ You pick the sample group / area you want to estimate i.e. city (here Warsaw) ▪ You count the number of all restaurants in the area ▪ For the chosen area you count the franchising restaurants ▪ You check the population of the whole country – here Poland ▪ Assuming similar density as in Warsaw you scale up the number of franchised restaurants proportionally to the population
  24. 24. 24 …to make you better at this method imagine you want to sell home made dog food….. First you have to estimate how many dogs they are….. ▪ First you should pick your sample – can be your friends or neighbors ▪ Next step is to calculate how many dogs they have ▪ Once you have the number also calculate how many households they are in the sample ▪ It is now enough to know how many households there are in the country ▪ And assuming similar proportion as in your sample you scale up the number of dogs +
  25. 25. 25 …with the number of dogs you just have to estimate the number of food eaten per year by average dog…..and you get to the size of the food market ▪ We have the number of dogs in the whole country. Now we have to get from here to the dog food ▪ This requires us to estimate additionally how much food would average dog eat per year ▪ In this way using annual average consumption per dog and the estimated number of dogs we are able to estimate how much food is eaten every year in the country +
  26. 26. 26 Lets sum up the bottom-up approach ▪Bottom-up approach enables you to estimate within one minutes the indicative size of the market ▪It is very good for the B2C markets ▪For better estimation you should segment customers and increase the sample size
  27. 27. 27 Top-down approach
  28. 28. 28 When to use top-down approach? ▪You know the size of the whole market ▪You are interested in a specific segment of the market ▪Segment is big enough ▪You are thinking about niche strategy or low cost strategy (market re-segmenting)
  29. 29. 29 For a change lets see how it would work with top-down approach ▪ You use the total market size to get to the size of the segment in which you are interested ▪ You have to use some sort of sample measure ▪ By applying the result from the sample you can get to the size of the segment in which you are interested
  30. 30. 30 … let’s use the top-down approach to estimate the market for science fiction books sold in Poland…. ▪ You use the total number of books sold in your country ▪ Then you go to the bookstore that belongs to the biggest chain of bookstore and check what percentage of the shelves are take by science fiction books ▪ If you use this proportion to the whole market you should get the rough estimation of the science fiction book segment
  31. 31. 31 Backward reasoning
  32. 32. 32 Imagine that you were supposed to say how much you have to spend to create a company that has revenue of $ 100 M dollarImagine that you were supposed to say how much you have to spend to create a company that has revenue of $ 100 M dollar
  33. 33. 33 You could use for that the so called backward reasoning CC: Flickr; Cycle Track
  34. 34. 34 Imagine that you were supposed to say how much you have to spend to create a company that has revenue of $ 100 M dollar Total Costs $ 400 M Cost of 1 lead $ 2 K # of leads 200 K ÷ % Conversion 10% x # of customers 20 K Average revenue per customer $ 5 K Revenues $ 100 M x
  35. 35. 35 Compound effect
  36. 36. 36 There are 2 types of compounding effect Time related Operations related ▪ Even if the growth is small applied over long period of time gives big end-results ▪ A lot of small changes in many areas may produce a big end-results # of customers Average revenue per customer Revenues x +15% +20% +38% = 2,6 x StartStart x (1+10%)^10

  48. 48. 48 Removing bottlenecks
  49. 49. 49 Bottlenecks are dangerous as their hurt the efficiency of the whole system
  50. 50. 50 What is the throughput of every system and where is the bottleneck? Example 1 7 5 7 Example 2 5 10 20 Example 3 5 5 3 x Stage capacity
  51. 51. 51 The are 4 rules that you should follow when it comes to bottlenecks ▪ Identify what is the bottleneck ▪ Increase its throughput by lowering the time needed for everything that goes through the bottleneck ▪ Add new resources to bottleneck ▪ Adjust everything to the bottleneck – so it works at the same pace
  52. 52. 52 Imagine that you are working in a company working in a content marketing Research topics for a post Write a post Create illustration Edit and modify post, add illustration and schedule 20 5 7 10 # of post that can be done in a week by 1 person ▪ Speed up the writing process (faster typing, better tools, shortcuts for the most popular words) xx 20 8 7 10 10 9 10 10 ▪ Make the researcher do also par time writing and making illustration ▪ We have almost doubled the production of post with the same resources ▪ The same principles would apply if all the activities were done only by you – in this case it would mean that you should not do too much research and illustration but rather improve the typing speed and match the number of illustration and researches to your capacity in writing ▪ If you have no impact on the process (you are one of the guys above just doing his own part and your boss does not want to listen to you then simply do less – identify the bottleneck and adjust your speed to his speed. ▪ On the other hand if you are the bottleneck then speed up because the whole team depends on you.
  53. 53. 53 Market size estimation
  54. 54. 54 Market size estimation - Introduction
  55. 55. 55 In those sort of cases they want to check a few things ▪ Can you structure a problem? ▪ How do you behave when confronted by things that you know nothing about? ▪ How do you fill in the gaps? ▪ Your approach to analyzes?
  56. 56. 56 I will show you few examples
  57. 57. 57 I recommend going on your own through cases before seeing the solution Go through the lecture with the tasks and questions Pause the course for 5 minutes and try to solve the problem on your own as if you were in a real interview Go to the next lecture with solution and go carefully through it Before going to next lecture compare your answer with what I have shown in the solution Proceed with the next case
  58. 58. 58 TV sets market
  59. 59. 59 Imagine that you were asked to estimate the market for TV sets What is meant here by “the market”? Annual sales or total ownership? What is included in the TV sets (i.e. monitors are in or not)? Do you want the market estimation to be in volumes or in values?
  60. 60. 60 Let’s start by finding the main drivers for TV sets. We assume that it depends on the number of families. If we have the number of families and the number of TV per family we an estimate how many TVs are owned # of families # of TV set per family # of TV sets owned by all families x
  61. 61. 61 To get from TVs owned to the number of TVs bough every year we need to assume how often TV are replaced # of families # of TV set per family # of TV sets owned by all families x # of years of usage of a TV sets ÷ Number of TV sold during the year
  62. 62. 62 Once we have the number of TV sold we can calculate the value of the market # of families # of TV set per family # of TV sets owned by all families x # of years of usage of a TV sets ÷ Number of TV sold during the year Average price per TV Value of TV sets sold during the year x
  63. 63. 63 If you do not know the number of families you can estimate it using the total number of people # of families # of TV set per family # of TV sets owned by all families x # of years of usage of a TV sets ÷ Number of TV sold during the year Average price per TV Value of TV sets sold during the year x Total population Average size of a family ÷
  64. 64. 64 Below how it would look like for Poland 10 M families in Poland 1 TV set per family 10 M TV sets owned x Every 4 years replacement of TV set ÷ 2.5 M of TV sets sold annually USD 1 000 per TV SET USD 2 500 M of sold TV sets x 40 M people in Poland 4 people per family ÷

  66. 66. 66 Sales and marketing cases
  67. 67. 67 Sales and marketing cases- Introduction
  68. 68. 68 In those sort of cases they want to check a few things about you: ▪ What is your general knowledge about sales and marketing? ▪ How analytical and goal-oriented you are when it comes to sales? ▪ How innovative you can be in sales / marketing? ▪ Are you a good sales / marketing person?
  69. 69. 69 Sales channels comparison
  70. 70. 70 Imagine that as a consultant you were asked to analyze your client situation- FMCG producer that is using different channels of distribution. How would you check whether his using the right mix channels Own shops Retail chains E-commerce Marketplaces Wholesalers
  71. 71. 71 How would you check whether his using the right mix channels What “right means”? What metrics you should look at to decide on the right mix? What are the strategic goals? What would you do – next steps?
  72. 72. 72 How would you check whether his using the right mix channels What “right means”? ▪ Right = the most profitable ▪ Right = the most profitable, still close to the structure market What metrics you should look at to decide on the right mix? What are the strategic goals? What would you do – next steps? ▪ Net margin per channel ▪ % Net margin per channel ▪ Market share of specific channel ▪ Number of customers or middlemen in a specific channel ▪ % of revenues in a specific channel generated by top 3 players ▪ Have higher share in channels experience high growth and have chances to become significant in the next 3 years ▪ Have higher share in channels that are not consolidated and the middlemen or the customer does not have significant purchasing power ▪ Step 1: Get the data on sales, COGS and direct and indirect channel costs ▪ Step 2: Calculate the profitability on all levels for all channels ▪ Step 3: Get the data on the market: % share of specific channel, number of players in the specific channel, % of revenues in a specific channel generated by top 3 players ▪ Step 4: Find out the strategic goals ▪ Step 5: Compare and decided on targeted mix of channel
  73. 73. 73 Potential for growth - retailer
  74. 74. 74 Imagine that you are retailer with 200 stores in the whole country. Gdańsk Szcecin Bydgoszcz Poznań Wrocław Katowice Łódź Kraków Rzeszów Kielce Lublin Warszawa Białystok Gdynia-Sopot Gliwice Olsztyn Opole Zielona Góra Current number of stores
  75. 75. 75 How you would estimate the potential for growth? What “growth means”? ▪ Build new store ▪ Like For Like growth (LFL, L4L) What metrics you should use to decided whether to build a new store in a specific place or not? What are the strategic goals? What would you do – next steps? ▪ You should first establish the capture area for every type of store. It can be defined as an area or number of potential customers ▪ Define the expected profitability per store ▪ For every city you should calculate the number of stores at the saturation point ▪ Is the Retailer willing to sacrifice profitability just to capture more market share? ▪ What market share it aims at? ▪ What are his limitation in-terms of capex ▪ Step 1: Get the data on number of stores per city, population per city and data needed to calculate the saturation point (i.e. the minimal number of customers per store) ▪ Step 2: Calculate saturation point per every city ▪ Step 3: Compare the current number of shops with the saturation point ▪ Step 4: Decide on the basis of saturation point and strategic goals what to do
  76. 76. 76 Below how we would calculate whether it makes sense to build a new store in a specific city Total population in the city Minimal number of population per shop Number of shops at saturation point Current number of stores ÷ Built new shops till saturation point if you have money > Don’t build any new shops in this location <
  77. 77. 77 If we were talking about Warsaw we could see the following picture 1 000 K people in Warsaw We need at least 100 K per store 10 6 ÷ ÷ ÷ We can build 4 new stores but we have money only for 2 > We haven’t reached saturation point <
  78. 78. 78 Number of stores by provinces Gdańsk Szcecin Bydgoszcz Poznań Wrocław Katowice Łódź Kraków Rzeszów Kielce Lublin Warszawa Białystok Gdynia-Sopot Gliwice Olsztyn Opole Zielona Góra Targeted number of stores Current number of stores

  85. 85. 85 Imagine that you were responsible for managing the cinema. What KPIs metrics you would look at to see whether you are doing a good job?
  86. 86. 86 You should first start by estimating the revenues of the cinema you are managing # sold tickets Average revenue per Ticket Total revenue x
  87. 87. 87 Average revenue per ticket depends on the price of the ticket as well as average additional purchase are people making # sold tickets Average revenue per Ticket Total revenue x Average price per ticket Average additional purchase per ticket +
  88. 88. 88 Number of sold tickets depends on the capacity of the cinema (number of potential seats) as well as the percentage utilization of this space # sold tickets Average revenue per Ticket Total revenue x Average price per ticket Average additional purchase per ticket Total capacity in tickets % Utilization + x
  89. 89. 89 On the cost side we have rent and the salaries of the people # sold tickets Average revenue per Ticket Total revenue Total Costs x Average price per ticket Average additional purchase per ticket Total capacity in tickets % Utilization Rent People + + x
  90. 90. 90 Salaries depend on the number of people and average wages # sold tickets Average revenue per Ticket Total revenue Total Costs x Average price per ticket Average additional purchase per ticket Total capacity in tickets % Utilization Rent People # of People Average wages + + x x
  91. 91. 91 When we deduct from the revenues the costs we get roughly the EBITDA of the cinema that you manage # sold tickets Average revenue per Ticket Total revenue Total Costs x EBITDA per cinema - Average price per ticket Average additional purchase per ticket Total capacity in tickets % Utilization Rent People # of People Average wages + + x x
  92. 92. 92 Once you have all the KPIs and you can start wondering how to increase the EBITDA of your cinema # sold tickets Average revenue per Ticket Total revenue Total Costs x EBITDA per cinema - Average price per ticket Average additional purchase per ticket Total capacity in tickets % Utilization Rent People # of People Average wages + + x x

  100. 100. 100 First you have to divide the balls in 3 groups Group A Group B Group C
  101. 101. 101 Then put two groups on the scale. Let’s imagine that you put Group A and Group B Group A Group B
  102. 102. 102 If the scale stay in balance it means that the heavier 1 ball is in group C Group A Group B
  103. 103. 103 If the scale is tilting at the group A side it means that the heavier ball is in group A Group A Group B
  104. 104. 104 If the scale is tilting at the group B side it means that the heavier ball is in group B Group A Group B
  105. 105. 105 Imagine that you have 9 balls. One of them is slightly heavier. You have weights with scale that you can use 2 times Group A Group B Group C
  106. 106. 106 Let’s assume that the scales were in balance. We get rid of group A and B. Every ball in group C gets its own unique number C1, C2, C3. We put C1 and C2 on the scales. If the scale remain in balance it means that C3 is heavier. If the scales tilt at whatever side the tilt is this will point to the heavier ball C1 C2
  107. 107. 107 Imagine that you have 9 balls. One of them is slightly heavier. You have weights with scale that you can use 2 times
  108. 108. 108 To sum up we did it in 2 phases. In the 1st one we got rid of 6 balls. In the 2nd one we got the heavier ball out of three Group A Group B Group C C1 C2 C3 Phase 1 Phase 2

Getting into consulting is one of the most difficult tasks. It’s not only very selective but also quite tough and long recruitment process. You will have at least 5 job interviews, spend on average 2-3 months in recruiting process and your chances of succeeding will be around 5-10%. I will help you significantly boost the odds in your favor. This course will help you prepare for the cases that you will be asked to solve during the job interviews with consultants. I will improve your knowledge and skills in analysis through a series of practical cases. It is based on my 11 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting companies and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, improvement and turn-arounds in biggest companies from FMCG, SMG, B2B sector that I worked for. I have participated in over 200 recruitments and the materials in this course will encompass all the tricks that you should use during the interview. On the basis of what you will find in this course and I have trained over 100 business analysts who now are Investment Directors, Senior Analyst, Directors in Consulting Companies, Board Members etc. There is little theory – mainly examples, a lot of tips from my own experience as well as other notable examples worth mentioning. My intention is that thanks to the course you will know: 1. How to approach any type of cases that you may come across in the job interview? 2. How to apply the most useful concepts and methods used later by consultants in their work? 3. How to be efficient during the interview? 4. How the consultant minds works?
