All interviews were focused on leadership principles, and required me to talk through scenarios in context of the principles. Since this interview was for a product manager - technical role, I was asked some questions related to agile software development, and had to also submit a writing exercise.

2 Answers

Had prepared about 8 main stories which captured previous projects well - in light of the leadership principles (i.e. demonstrated customer obsession, frugality, deliver results, .. ). Beyond talking through the stories, the interviewers were very interested in drilling down into details (asked lots of challenge questions, validated data/calculations, asked me to quantify success/impact from stories). Overall it was an exhausting, intense, but fun interview experience. Less
