Case Interview Prompt
The business we are talking about is the London Millennium Dome. The Dome is a large recreational and leisure experience facility in Greenwich in London. The facility consists basically of a large tent. Inside the tent there are 17 “Zones” each of which has a different theme, and each of which is sponsored by a different company. Sponsors have full creative control over their exhibits, and some zones are extremely popular while
others are less popular.
The Dome is suffering from significant financial problems as well as a large amount of negative publicity. We have been appointed by the UK government to come up with a solution for how to turn this thing around. To make matters worse, the facility has a “life” of one year, and will be closed in 10 months.
The main purpose of this case is to come up with the plan for how to turn this thing around.
