Continuing our catch up on last year’s Strictly Boardroom articles: In August we published a pair of articles on job interviews, specifically for management consultancy, using the ‘structured problem solving’ technique commonly employed to test candidates. There’s a ‘what not to do’ and a ‘what to do’ article. Hopefully these will be useful if you’re going through the interview process (for any kind of job) at the moment.

The articles are available to subscribers on or contact me:

For keen followers of the Strictly Boardroom column, our book “Strictly (Mining) Boardroom Volume II: A Practitioners Guide for Next Generation Directors” was published last year and is available as a paperback or e-book from Major Street Publishing or Amazon. We’re pleased to say that the book received a very positive review in the AusIMM Bulletin and in Geoscientist magazine – the members publication of the Geological Society of London.
