What we do

The public sector's influence comes directly, through government entities, state-owned enterprises and institutional funding, as well as indirectly, through regulation and oversight. The sector is facing major challenges, such as rising costs, growing deficits, shifting centers of economic activity, a burgeoning war for talent and increasingly demanding customers.

Recently, the use of stimulus funds and regulatory reform has further blurred the lines between public and private entities.


Bain works with bold, ambitious leaders who are not satisfied with the status quo and eager for change to address the key strategic tools that improve performance and help public-sector entities do the work they do better.

Our experience serving public-sector clients encompasses the following areas, to name a few:

We share our clients' ambitions. We work to understand their reality and deliver true results—focusing on strategic decisions and practical actions. And we align our incentives with our clients’ objectives, so they know we’re in it together. The client stories below are just a few examples of how we've helped organizations realize, and often exceed, their goals.

Economic Development in the Middle East

Taking economic development from vision to reality

Bain worked with several economic development entities in a Middle Eastern country to help make industrial development objectives a reality on the ground. Over several years, the work has encompassed all key strands from sector/region development, to economic zone strategy, to driving entrepreneurship.

Family Services Government Entity

Preserving and enhancing the role of the family in social development

Bain worked with a government entity providing services to families in a Middle Eastern country. Together, we helped redefine the strategy to focus on the most important family-related issues—and launched several new programs with an immediate improvement in feedback from the beneficiaries.

City of Chicago's Department of Environment

Partnering with local government to achieve environmental goals.

Bain worked with the City of Chicago's Department of the Environment (DOE) on pro bono cases for 5 years in an effort to help turn Chicago into "America's Greenest City." Bain developed a series of green strategies to enhance Chicago's efforts and several have been expanded nationally.
