The public sector requires different preparation than the private sector—but you must be just as thorough.
Start by adopting a mindset that puts stakeholders, mission, and impact at the forefront. And since the market is vast—spanning industries as far-reaching as military, law enforcement, infrastructure from the internet to bridges, education, and healthcare to name a few—you’ve got to be well-versed in your target sector’s special jargon, constraints, opportunities, culture, partners, and politics. Finally, because our fast-changing world demands better, cheaper, and faster services so you’ve got to pull it all together and operate at your best.
In this indispensable guide, authors Cosentino and public sector guru Evan Piekara lead you through the many requirements, complexities, and nuances that define public sector work. Best-in-class advice includes:
The special impact of stakeholders, culture, social responsibility, and more
Case In Point: Government and Nonprofit will help you differentiate yourself and help you compete for consulting jobs more effectively.
“This book distills what I’ve learned the hard way in the public sector, as a government official and a nonprofit executive.”
–CEO, Direct Relief
“THE guide for new and experienced consultants in the public sector.”
“A practical, effective, essential resource for anyone looking to enter the field or sharpen skills.”
–Executive Director, Louisiana Department of Education
“A thoughtful, engaging, must-read for aspiring and current practitioners.”
–Senior Engagement Manager, McKinsey & Company
so you can address charts, graphs, and data sets with confidence.
The use of complex graphs in case interviews has exploded. No doubt, you will have limited time to look at a graph, analyze it, extract what’s important, and apply it to your answer.
Authors Cosentino and longtime consultant Mukund Jain have designed this short guide to help you leverage graphs in consulting—during interviews, and on the job. You get their Ivy Graph Framework to help you analyze 11 of the most popular graphs effectively and efficiently. You also get 10 complex sample cases—with numerous graphs per case—to show how each case unfolds. See for yourself why there is nothing else like it.
The must-have guide to transform classroom knowledge into high-impact wins.
Why is the case method so important? It teaches emerging leaders how to analyze a situation—how to diagnose a problem, formulate a recommendation, present it effectively, and gain approval from top executives. In fact, the case method is one of the most productive frameworks you can leverage for success. The Amazon reviews say it all:
The best way to stand out among a pool of elite MBA students is to dominate the details, and this is where this book thrives.
Read this before your first case competition!
As a professor, former consultant, and someone who has served as a judge for dozens of case competitions, I could not recommend this book more highly. This past semester I made the book required reading in my management consulting course. It’s more than a book about how to win case competitions. It’s a book about how to present a coherent, data driven (yet cognitively digestible), strategic recommendation to a group of busy (often distracted) senior level executives.
It's everything an interviewer looks for during a case! You'll also get periodic updates from Marc Cosentino.
