Below is a brief, step-by-step showcase of my process and what I did to develop a touchpoint for my interview with McKinsey & Co.

If you would like to submit a comment or feedback on the interview or this process page follow the link here.


My Approach

My approach is based on the double diamond framework and relies on divergence and convergence actions to move through the framework.  I use this framework because it provides a simple linear path in an otherwise highly ambiguous process.

1. Frame

During the framing phase the goal is to create the right question(s) to hypothesize and test later in the process.  
This phase takes objectives and resources into high contextual consideration.  

"Can I identify key components in the McKinsey interview process and leverage those insights to design and develop a mutually beneficial guide resulting in employment?" 


2. Research and Analysis

Understanding a complex problem demands collecting and organizing large amounts of disparate information.

3. Synthesis

Identifying important data points and connecting them is the basis of all synthesis.  All results are a direct product of those involved in the synthesis of available information.

4. Design and Build

Using the right tools and resources for what you are building is imperative to creating a timely solution with minimal rework.

5. Implement

This is the point where all the hard work comes together.  While products and services are never finished, it is important to balance readiness with timelines when deciding when to "launch."
