between the organization’s goals and capabilities and its changing marketing
Mission Statement a statement of the organization’s purpose – what it wants to
accomplish in the larger environment. Are often product-oriented (i.e. We run
theme parks) but to be effective, should be market-oriented (i.e. We create fantasies
a place where dreams come true and America still works the way it’s supposed to)
Business portfolio the collection of businesses and products that make up the
Portfolio analysis the process by which management evaluates the products and
businesses that make up the company
-look at SBUs (strategic business units a company division, a product line, or
sometimes a single product or brand) and assess their attractiveness and how much
support each one needs
Growth-share matrix - this is the Boston Consulting Group approach, in which a
company plans its portfolio by evaluating a company’s SBUs in terms of market
growth rate and relative market share:
Stars high growth, high share businesses or products. Often need heavy
investments to finance their rapid growth, and will eventually slow and
become cash cows
Cash cows low growth, high share businesses or products. These
established and successful SBUs need less investment to hold their market
share, and produce a lot of cash that the company uses to pay its bills and
support other SBUs
Question marks low share business units in high growth markets. They
require a lot of cash to hold their share, let alone increase it. Management
has to think hard about which question marks it should try to build into stars
and which should be phased out
Dogs low growth, low share businesses and products. May generate enough
cash to maintain themselves but have low potential
