McKinsey Problem Solving Game (Solve)
The Problem Solving Game (Solve) was constructed to meet McKinsey’s changing value proposition. which promises to strive for an unbiased and smoother recruiting process. Previously, candidates had to take PST either at assessment centers or at the office, while Solve can be taken at home, which makes it more convenient for both candidates and McK.
Another factor for change was that the nature of the consulting business has become quite complex, with more stakeholders to manage in fast-evolving conditions. As a result, strong business judgment and analytical skills are not enough to solve today's business problems effectively.
Because of the factors above, Solve has taken the place of the original Problem Solving Test, which no longer challenges candidates with the dynamism that McKinsey requires.
