Director, Corporate Development was asked...23 January 2012

The case interviews were consulting firm-type interview questions. The first was about evaluating a call center's effectiveness and profitability. The second was evaluating whether or not a certain screening process (I think that it was employment verificiation or something) was cost effective in weeding out delinquent potential customers. The third was about the profitability of an affinty card program.

All of the cases started out with some qualitative brainstorming, including some sort of net profit calculation, and concluded with a breakeven calculation of some type. So, make sure you generally know how to calculate the profitability of a credit card customer and what a default rate is. The interviewer will walk you through a scenario, and then provide you with some numbers to do the case. I was told that they would provide me with paper, pens, calculator, and a white board. In every instance, I had to ask for paper and did not get a calculator, so perhaps the recruiter just gave me stale information. Less

How do you convince people to change their mindset when they do not want to change?

1 Answers

There is no set way. People only change when they see a personal benefit to make the change. The issue is that no two people have the same personal reasons for change. It takes work, some people will immediately see the reason, adopt it and relish change. In most cases you have to learn what is driving someone and then craft a dialogue about the change and reasons. One time it took me 6 months to change someone's mind and get them on board with the rest of the team. Eventually that person became a champion for the changes and later lead the way for more changes and innovation. Less
