BCG folks, what's the best way to prepare for the PEI? Context: I have 10+ YOE and I'm not in shortage of stories; I'm more interested in what attributes/values that BCG is looking for so I can highlight these

PEI?! What’s that, now? I have to guess no one understood what it means given the number of replies. Can you elaborate?

like

Personal experience interviews. The none case part of the interview

STAR format is helpful. Not 100% sure what BCG looks for but I would imagine it is similar around leadership, impact and entrepreneurship. Have a few stories about leading a team, dealing with conflicts and doing something that challenged you with a team and your own skill set.

PEI means personal experience interviews. I thought this was typical lingo

OP they’re all on the website!

Place a lot of importance on being succinct.
