About Bain

What We Believe

Bain was founded in 1973 with a mission to redefine the management consulting industry to focus on delivering client results, not just reports. We have continued to be innovators for our industry, with an entrepreneurial culture that is never satisfied with the status quo, for ourselves or for our clients.

At Bain, we are guided by our mission to have a transformative impact on our clients and abide by our True North values—our unwavering commitment to always do the right thing by our clients, our people and our communities.

We help our clients create such high levels of value that together we set new standards of excellence in our respective industries.

Guided by True North

Passion for Results

Results, not reports

Bain was founded in 1973 on the principle that clients should get results—not just reports—from their consultants. We broke the rules by developing customized strategies that helped clients beat their competition. Our teams worked alongside clients to turn recommendations into concrete actions. In the consulting world, our results-driven approach was a unique innovation.

Putting our money where our mouth is

Bain engages in various "tied economics" arrangements with our clients, allowing us to better align our financial incentives with client outcomes. Our people are passionate about creating bottom-line results for clients. Aligned economics arrangements fall right in line with this commitment. We prosper only if the client prospers.

Results Delivery®

More than 70% of major change efforts typically fail. Bain's approach to realizing results helps clients overcome the odds. With Results Delivery, we focus on predicting, measuring and managing risk associated with the change from day one. The result: a considerable increase in the odds of success, supported by Bain experts and dedicated partners within the client's organization.
