Round 1

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: PI questions:Why infrastructure division?
  • Question 2: Why not pure strategy and why operational consulting?
  • Question 3: How did you deal with people in your previous organizations – L&T and Accenture consulting?
  • Question 4: Give me a time when you were faced with an ethical dilemma and how did you tackle the situation?
  • Question 5: Case Questions: You walk into the office of a GM of a Coffin manufacturing company. He wants to improve his cash situation. You look outside his window and see the shop floor. You have 2 mins to gather what you see and make some quick recommendations to him.(Case type:Operations)
Interview Experience
I was given a photograph of a coffin manufacturing line. A very quick reading made it clear that it is to do with the Theory of Constraints and lean manufacturing. I took some time to identify the point like:
• Inventory distribution across the line
• No of workers around the floor
• Type of operations
• Material identification problems
• General work environment on the floor
I then used the 5 steps of TOC to evaluate how it would be the best tool to tackle the issues and an estimate of the types of savings possible. I was the told that my suggestions were implemented but after 5 months, workers began to return to their original ways. They then asked my next course of action. I discussed points on using right incentives, using display methods like that used in Toyota to describe how the process could be made sustainable. I also spoke about the correct usage of Kaizens and how
they help improve productivity and reduce cost.
What helped I have a background in Lean manufacturing and that tied in well with the case. I was able to immediately zero in on TOC and use the steps effectively

Interview Tips
For most operations case, make sure you have DMOP and Ops 101 very clear.
Round 2

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: PI questions:Run us through the projects you worked on while at L&T and Accenture
  • Question 2: Why not Accenture and why Feedback
  • Question 3: Case Questions:Your client has just won a BOT tender for Road development. He has come to you to improve IRR. What do you think?(Case type:Operations)
Interview Experience
I started off by gaining the understanding of situation and objective. I gathered info on the type of cities, the nature of vehicular traffic, distance, alternatives etc which gave me an understanding of the revenue streams. After some preliminary data gathering, I suggested they ration the number of food courts on the road (since they said it’s a 300km journey connecting 2 state capitals) and on the basis of a revenue sharing model issue discounts coupons to be used at specific food courts. The frequency of a particular court would be based on % revenue sharing. The exact numbers would need some complex pricing and revenue optimization model I also enquired about any tourist location which could be developed and a revenue sharing could be instituted with the government.
The case was an actual project Feedback had been involved in. The tourism idea turned out to be the suggestion which worked well for the project and did actually improve the IRR for the firm.
I could have structured the case better. As in divide it into 2 revenue streams – Internal (toll) and external (revenue sharing streams)

Round 1

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: PI questions:Walking though the resume
  • Question 2: Why returning back to India?
  • Question 3: Why ISB?
  • Question 4: Case Questions:Innovative revenue streams for Delhi Metro?
Interview Experience
• Clearly told the interviewer that I do not have much exposure to real estate, roads or ports.
• Applied common sense and let him help me out when I was running out of ideas at times.
• The guy was looking at how I think more than what answers I come up with
• I think coming out clean with the fact that I have limited knowledge of the industry/sector set the expectations right, which
helped me out.
• I think I came up with good answers for the question.
What went wrong was that I could have prepared more and studied some obvious projects in India infrastructure


Round 2

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Case Questions: Handed me a picture of a coffin manufacturing facility. Asked me to point out what changes will I recommend in their operations (just by looking at the picture, no further information was given)
Interview Experience
In PI, most questions were to understand my motivation and interest in infrastructure sector. Also he was trying to look for things in my resume that indicate that I will stick around since it’s not run of the mill industry in India and his its own challenges. (very outdoorsy projects, familiarity with heavy industry). Asked me to ask him any question I like. What helped me was my experience to have seen heavy industry up-close gave me a lot of confidence and I think that helped me answer question very
well.

Interview Tips
The people were very friendly and humble. They were not specifically looking for a structure; they were more concerned whether you can identify all the important aspects.

Though having grades is an advantage but I don’t think they were looking for grades. Be well read about the sector. Convince them that you have been following this space because you want to pursue a career in Infrastructure. Be confident and humble.
