Four Areas Whiteboard Example - BCG Matrix
BCG Matrix: A BCG matrix is a framework that helps companies analyze their product portfolio and make strategic decisions about where to allocate resources. The matrix is divided into four quadrants: stars, question marks, cash cows, and dogs.
- Stars: Stars are high-growth, high-market-share products. They require a lot of investment to maintain their growth, but they also generate a lot of cash.
- Question marks: Question marks are high-growth, low-market-share products. They have the potential to become stars, but they also require a lot of investment. Companies need to decide whether to invest in question marks or divest them.
- Cash cows: Cash cows are low-growth, high-market-share products. They generate a lot of cash, but they don't require a lot of investment. Companies should use the cash from cash cows to invest in stars and question marks.
- Dogs: Dogs are low-growth, low-market-share products. They don't generate a lot of cash, and they require a lot of investment. Companies should consider divesting dogs.
- Shapes: The slide uses a variety of shapes, including rectangles, circles, and lines.
- Colors: The slide uses a variety of colors, including blue, green, yellow, and red.
- Icons: The slide uses a variety of icons, including stars, question marks, and cash cows.
- Composition: The slide is well-composed, with the text and graphics balanced evenly.
- Each quadrant of the BCG matrix contains a different icon: a star for stars, a question mark for question marks, a cash cow for cash cows, and a dog for dogs.
- The BCG matrix is also labeled with the two axes of the matrix: relative market share and market growth rate.
