02. How to create great structures FAST (under 2 minutes)
Play • 46 min

In this episode we will show you how to create great structures fast in your case interviews (instead of mediocre structures slowly).

You will learn...

  • How fast you really need to be when creating your initial structures (everyone says it's 2 minutes, but it's not that simple...)
  • The bi-modal structuring practice technique that will help you improve the quality of your structure while decreasing the time you take to build it
  • How to NEVER be caught off-guard when the interviewer finally interrupts your thinking time and asks you to start speaking
