Use this PwC case study for top notch case interview practice!
Case Study Prompt
We have been staffed on a project at a leading ISP (Internet Service Provider), American Internet.
It’s been a dismal year with declining profits for the company and the CEO has recently announced that this will be reset year and that they are looking forward to next year being a rebound year with aggressive revenue growth.
The CEO has been getting mixed messages from 3 camps within the organization. One camp thinks American Internet should focus only on content and ditch the internet service offering. Another thinks they should focus on connectivity alone and a third camp thinks that the best strategy to grow revenues is to focus on both.
How do you think the CEO should grow revenues?
Case Study Overview
Your client has seen declining profits in the past year, and has hired you to help turn the ship around. In this PwC case study, it’s your job to take a good hard look at the profitability and revenue and provide a recommendation on how the client can reverse the decline.
Use the Profitability Framework to solve the problem. However, for the best case interview practice, we recommend that you blend frameworks and your own business acuity to build a custom structure that best fits the case problem.
This case study has a qualitative difficulty score of 3 out of 4. There are no diagrams/math exhibits in the case. This case study will prepare you for a second round PwC interview.
