So I recently failed a SJT with Rolls Royce which I am gutted about.

I have another SJT (I'm sure many more to come) and was wondering if someone could give me an idea of how someone should handle this situation? Just so I understand the thought process (For example I know its always best to collaborate with colleagues as a team to show you're not socially inept and can work with others).

Soo Heres the example:Your department is about to launch a new product. Your team has spent the last three months preparing and you are ready to go live in one week. 3,000 flyers have been printed to go to the retail stores. You have just been given a copy of the flyer and you notice an error on the reverse side. The flyer went through several departments to be branded and proofed before it was printed so you cannot understand how this was missed. There is no budget to print again.

Rank the following from Most Effective to Least Effective:

1. Show the flyer to other people to see if they notice the error. If it is not obvious, go ahead with the launch and release the flyers to the retail stores with the error.
2. Talk to your manager about the situation to see if the flyers can be reprinted. Ask if he can help you by investigating other ways of obtaining budget.
3. Go ahead with the launch without the flyers. Speak to colleagues to see if there is budget available in other areas, to market the product in a different way.
4. Delay the launch by a couple of weeks. Investigate if efficiencies can be made in other parts of the project to release the budget to print the flyers again

Many thanks!

What did you pick?
Most effective:
3. Shows initiative and communication to come up with an alternative solution
2. Shows communication and initiative to address the issue
4. Shows initiative and addressing the solution
1. Although a good idea, kind of ignored the problem which I dont think is a good idea

Let me know what you think

how I answer SJT. passed 4 failed 2 doing this:

pick options that suggest you are taking initative

then pick options that suggest collaboration

then pick options that suggest taking it higher up (to management)

then pick options that suggest ignoring the problem/doing nothing
Thanks for the post and thats my thought process as well but even then i seem to fail.. what would be your take on this scenario?

Thanks

tip:

when answering sjts, think about what is the worst, not what is the best. then work your way up. it's easier
Thanks for the help dude. I ended up passing it and onto the video assessment! Good luck with Capital one
