THis is an amazing business idea. I wonder whether this is also applicable to other areas in chemicals. Do you have any knowledge how this has been copied?
Hello Michelle, great post!
I would be interested whether you know anything about the competitive reaction of the incumbent players towards the new players in the razor industry. Given the large market power and almost endless resources of Gillette, I wonder whether Harry’s can survive if Gillette lowers their price point for example.
thanks for sharing this perspective. Given the large numbers of consolidations in this industry and the factor that Bain is the smallest of the “Big 3 Consultancies” do you see a danger of Bain being “eaten” by the expanding accounting giants PWC, E&Y, Deloitte and KPMG?
What parts of its operating model do you think will protect Bain from this threat?
