MECE is a key principle for structuring and breaking down anything from problems, to ideas, to workstreams, etc.

This concept is highly important in the management consulting industry and therefore it’s really important in Case Interviews.

What actually is it? How do we use it in Consulting Case Interview? What are non-MECE examples in various settings? Can I do a practice problem on it?

All is included in the exciting and detailed video above! Feel free to comment on the video’s Youtube page!

    mm I think the first 2 are overlapped and neither are the last 2, the middle one is not parallel with the other coz it’s an achievement not ability. Also there are 5 points which is too many
