Case Study Intro

A telecom company is interested in diversifying into other areas besides telecommunications. They are considering entering the market for electronic home security systems.

You have been asked to recommend whether they do so or not.

What framework do you think best addresses this case?

Case Study Overview

The client in this PwC case interview is a telecom company that wants to enter a new market. You’ve been hired to look into the new market and identify potential obstacles or red flags. What will your recommendation to the client be?

You can apply the market entry framework to help you solve for the solution to the case, but don’t rely only on the basic frameworks. Use your business acumen and case experience to build a custom framework.

This case is like one you would expect in a first round PwC case interview. No math exhibits are involved.
