Can you provide the industry? It'll help me answer. I've been in a few internal/corporate strategy roles.

So start from the basics, and this is applicable to most firms: - company: what is the general history of the company, what are the revenues and stock price, geographic distribution - product/service: what do they offer and what's key, how do they sell it (spoiler alert: I found out mid interview last year that I don't really understand ad sales), why do they sell it this way, and thinking forward - what would you recommend they change, what does that involve (investments, partnerships, etc) - competitors: who are they, when and why do they matter, can they disrupt the business and what are mitigation strategies, why would someone prefer your interviewer over them or vice versa. And at a higher level, what's the industry composition and what are the dynamics there... how easy is the business to disrupt (think investment vs. existing network effects, and other topics) You should similarly think about customers. Also read the role description to get an idea of the projects they do and think about why the are important. They are probably either things that have been done by this team, or will be done (possibly by you). Coming with an informed perspective on how you could tackle some of these helps. And of course all the behavioral questions, as usual. I can try to talk you through a more specific role via DM but ultimately you're there to help set the direction of the company or help answer some big questions that help inform the C-suite decisions (or BU decisions)
