Consulting Service



Are your competitors talking about you in their boardrooms? Does your strategy guide how you allocate resources? Can every employee articulate your strategy, and do they have what they need to execute it? At Bain, strategy is more than a plan, and we have been helping companies in all industries with their strategies since 1973.

What We Believe

What We Believe

Bain's strategy experts help clients with their most complex strategic challenges. We build tailored solutions to help clients achieve sustained growth and emphasize mobilization from day one. We begin by helping clients choose where to focus so they can outexecute and outinvest their competitors―and ultimately generate higher returns.

The strategy practice is anchored by Bain's 5 Beliefs on Strategy:

  1. There are few bad businesses, but many bad strategies. Outperformance depends more on market leadership and redefinition than on market selection.
  2. Leadership starts with a competitive advantage. Invest to "spike" only on a few critical capabilities. Trying to be good at everything makes it hard to be great at anything.
  3. Focus matters. Continuously reinforce the core, expand in adjacencies with a repeatable model, and prepare for long-term transformation.
  4. The ability to learn and adapt at speed. Learning is a source of advantage in its own right, especially during times of uncertainty.
  5. You can't win on the outside if you are losing on the inside. Insurgency, frontline obsession and an owner mindset fuel growth.
