â€¢ Brief (between 250 to 300 words)
â€¢ Written in a business-professional manner
â€¢ Include the following key points (at a minimum) based on your reading of the case.
1. Highlight an operational challenge at the company.
2. Recommend a strategic “next step” based on your assessment.
3. Suggest a line of questioning / topic area to explore with the consultant team during their presentation.
