Each year, organizations spend millions of dollars trying out new innovations and improvements-and millions will be wasted if they can't quickly find out what's working and what is not. The Success Case Method offers a breakthrough evaluation technique that is easier, faster, and cheaper than competing approaches, and produces compelling evidence decision-makers can actually use. Because it seeks out the best stories of how real individuals have actually used innovations, The Success Case Method can ferret out success no matter how small or infrequent. It can salvage the few "gems" of success from a larger initiative that is not doing well or find out how to make a partially successful effort even more successful. The practical methods and tools in this book can help those who initiate and foster change, including leaders, executives, managers, consultants, training directors, and anyone else who is trying to make things work better in organizations get the greatest returns for their investments.

IFPRI country programs: Lessons from case study successes

This study was undertaken as part of a larger learning exercise to assess the outcomes and impacts of the International Food Policy Research Institute’s country programs. It reports on in-depth probing of selected successful research contributions to policy outcomes in order to determine if there are any common approaches and actions taken by country program leaders that helped to foster the successes. The selection of case studies was not comprehensive— there were many more identified by country program leaders—nor random, because we desired to have samples from all the countries with country programs. A semi-structured interview approach was followed by the authors and guided by a list of questions (found in Appendix B). The results showed that important factors making successful contributions to policy were building high credibility with local policy makers and donors, having direct access to senior policy makers, partnering with the right people, conducting research on issues over the longer term and not just responding to crises, organizing conferences and meetings around research evidence, and strengthening national capacity for policy research.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The case interview is a unique interviewing format that firms such as McKinsey Company, Bain Company, Boston Consulting Group, Oliver Wyman, and others use. It is used to evaluate candidates with wide-ranging backgrounds. #2 The case interview is a trial run of the actual consulting interview. I learned that the most profitable skill I could learn while in school was not related to English, math, psychology, history, economics, or science. It was how to pass the case interview. #3 My experience as a job seeker and a consultant has shaped my perspective of the case interview. I’ve developed an uncommon insight into the case interview from having been on both sides of the table, and that’s what I share with you here. #4 The case interview process is made up of seven parts. Part One provides a big-picture view of the process and the different types of evaluation tools used. Part Two covers quantitative assessments. Part Three discusses the fundamentals of tackling real case interviews. Part Four covers the primary frameworks you’ll use to solve the business problems presented in the case interview. Part Five covers the traditional candidate-led case interview format. Part Six describes the other types of case interviews and how to handle them.

You often hear in discussions about case interviews that you should not use standard business frameworks and concepts at all, because they just don’t fit to the specific case question and interviewers don’t like it when candidates use standard frameworks to solve cases. However, when challenging this shallow, generalized and popularized statements, there aren’t any of those arguments remaining on the table. It is most definitely true that you can't crack a realistic interview case by relying solely on standardized frameworks - but all those business frameworks and concepts are extremely helpful templates which you can and even should put into your toolbox and use them whenever appropriate (if not to the full extent, at least partly!). Such a standard business framework is just a tool - and the tool itself is rarely good or bad, it mainly depends on how and for which purpose you use it. With this book, you achieve all of the following: - Get a profound overview of the most important business concepts and frameworks needed in consulting case interviews. - Really understand those business concepts and frameworks, instead of possessing only knowledge of dangerous half-truths. - Impress your interviewer on how structured and therefore client-friendly you tackle tough case interview questions. - Quickly learn how to actually apply those frameworks to concrete business situations, instead of just having a shallow theoretic knowledge of them. - Be more MECE (mutually exclusive, collectively exhaustive) in setting up your overall case structure at the beginning of your case interview. - Better structure your answers to particular questions later on in your case interview, again being more MECE. - Save tons of time by having high-quality content from 10+ years of consulting and interivew experience together in one single book. - Significantly reduce the risk of losing a tier-1 consulting firm job offer because you were not structured enough in your interview (and we all know how important it is to be ABS - Always Be Structured).
