In the memo, Laura Lang states the following on the objectives of Bain's support: “We hired Bain & Company to offer further perspective on market and consumer trends as we begin to articulate our strategic plan and roadmap. We need to find areas where we can double down, place big bets and get back on a revenue growth trajectory. We can only accomplish this if we have a very clear assessment of the landscape in which we operate and a cohesive strategy.”
