How we can help

Micro-battles System

Most executives know the paradox: Growth creates complexity, but complexity kills growth. Bain Micro-battles System℠ creates microcosms of the nimble, responsive company you want to become—or once were—and then scales them across your organization to revive your insurgency and ensure that your size is always a benefit, not a burden.

Why Bain

Why Bain

  • Bain wrote the book on the Founder's Mentality® and worked with companies worldwide to create Bain Micro-battles System for restoring insurgency.
  • Our method is based on our 18-year longitudinal study of sustained value creators, tested and refined in a three-year co-creation process in more than 35 founder/CEO forums around the world, and in workshops with 300+ CEOs and leadership teams.
  • We offer a tailored approach: Whether you’re a large incumbent, a fast-growing insurgent or even a struggling bureaucracy, Bain can help you preserve or restore your Founder’s Mentality.
