Case Prompt

Our client is a manufacturer of specialty labels. They have been losing money for the last three years.

There are two questions for you: (1) how to quickly improve profitability; (2) should the company stay in this industry?

Case Overview

This PwC case interview involves a company that manufacturers specialty labels. The company has been losing money consistently, and has brought you in to diagnose the issue and develop a strategy to get back to profitability.

You can use the Profitability Framework to help build out your structure for the case, but never try to force-fit a business problem into a framework. Rather, build a custom structure that will allow you to best solve the problem in the case.

The PwC case interview is a beginner level case study that you would most likely be given in a first round at PwC. There are no math diagrams inside the PwC case interview.
