Hi,

In a few weeks time i have a second round interview with CG to deliver a transformation plan based on a case study scenario followed by a competency based interview. Could any provide any advise, tips and possible an general idea what to expect if they have gone through the process. It’s been hard to land an interview with a big consulting firm and I want to hit the ground running by nailing the second round and getting the job. Thanks

I don't think this is rocket science -- they're just looking to you to demonstrate that you have the skills to do the job. It sounds like you're applying as an experienced hire -- so presumably you know what a transformation plan is and what it should contain, right?

It's kind of like the watercooler-pitch test. If a client came up to you and said "My business is facing a transformation challenge (e.g. implementing SAP and adopting the SAP business processes) -- what do I need to do over the next 18 months to ensure a successful transformation?" You've got 10 minutes to provide the headline view.

The interviewer will be looking for a few things:

- Awareness of the full project lifecycle

- Pre-transformation: project planning, org assessment, capacity for change, etc

- Mid-transformation: project management, delivery, change management, benefits tracking

- Post-transformation: benefits realisation, performance measurement, embedding the change

- Awareness of the softer side of consulting: roles and responsibilities, attitudes, "power maps", influencing and negotiating skills, getting buy-in, etc

The list above is not exhaustive, but should give you something to begin thinking about.

Good luck.

Hi VI Thank-you for coming back to me.

Im a consultant with 2 years experience and im working on a local government buisness transformation project which is long term and new to me so i have some idea about business transformation but not in so much depth. But since being involved in the business transformation project it has really inspired me to take it a step further hence why i have applied for the role at CG as a junior business transformation consultant and it appears that my company doesnt want to win other business transformation projects compared to other consulting firms. Thank-you for the advice you have provide its a great starting point to work on. Do you work at CG VI?
