Understanding BCG Matrix
The BCG Matrix method is the most popular portfolio management tool. It's used to determine what priorities should be given in the product portfolio of a business unit. It classifies business portfolio into four categories:
- Cash cow - a business unit that has a large market share in a mature, slow growing industry. Cash cow requires little investment and generate cash that can be used to invest in other business units.
- Dog - Dog holds low market share compared to competitors and operate in a slowly growing market. In general, they are not worth investing in because they generate low or negative cash returns.
- Star - Star operates in high growth industries and maintain high market share. Star may generate cash, but because the market is growing rapidly they require investment to maintain their lead. If successful, a star will become a cash cow when its industry matures.
- Question Mark - Question marks are the brands that require much closer consideration. They hold low market share in fast growing markets consuming large amount of cash and incurring losses.
