Bcg Matrix Analysis

...BCG Matrix Model BCG Matrix Model The BCG matrix or also called BCG model relates to marketing. The BCG model is a well-known portfolio management tool used in product life cycle theory. BCG matrix is often used to prioritize which products within company product mix get more funding and attention. The BCG matrix model is a portfolio planning model developed by Bruce Henderson of the Boston Consulting Group in the early 1970's. The BCG model is based on classification of products (and implicitly also company business units) into four categories based on combinations of market growth and market share relative to the largest competitor. When should I use the BCG matrix model? Each product has its product life cycle, and each stage in product's life-cycle represents a different profile of risk and return. In general, a company should maintain a balanced portfolio of products. Having a balanced product portfolio includes both high-growth products as well as low-growth products. A high-growth product is for example a new one that we are trying to get to some market. It takes some effort and resources to market it, to build distribution channels, and to build sales infrastructure, but it is a product that is expected to bring the gold in the future. An example of this product would be an iPod. A low-growth product is for example an established product known by the market. Characteristics of this product do not change much, customers know what they are getting, and the......

Maruti Company 7s Model

...McKinsey 7S Framework From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search [pic] [pic] Visual representation of the model The McKinsey 7S Framework is a management model developed by well-known business consultants Robert H. Waterman, Jr. and Tom Peters (who also developed the MBWA-- "Management By Walking Around" motif, and authored In Search of Excellence) in the 1980s. This was a strategic vision for groups, to include businesses, business units, and teams. The 7S are structure, strategy, systems, skills, style, staff and shared values. The model is most often used as a tool to assess and monitor changes in the internal situation of an organization. The model is based on the theory that, for an organization to perform well, these seven elements need to be aligned and mutually reinforcing. So, the model can be used to help identify what needs to be realigned to improve performance, or to maintain alignment (and performance) during other types of change. Whatever the type of change – restructuring, new processes, organizational merger, new systems, change of leadership, and so on – the model can be used to understand how the organizational elements are interrelated, and so ensure that the wider impact of changes made in one area is taken into consideration. OBJECTIVE OF THE MODEL (To analyze how well an organization is positioned to achieve its intended objective) Usage • Improve the performance of a company • Examine the likely effects of......

Bcg Matrix

...The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) Matrix Autonomous divisions (or profit centers) of an organization make up what is called a business portfolio. When a firm's divisions compete in different industries, a separate strategy often must be developed for each business. The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) Matrix and the Internal-External (IE) Matrix are designed specifically to enhance a multidivisional firm's efforts to formulate strategies. The BCG Matrix graphically portrays differences among divisions in terms of relative market share position and industry growth rate. The BCG Matrix allows a multidivisional organization to manage its portfolio of businesses by examining the relative market share position and the industry growth rate of each division relative to all other divisions in the organization. Relative market share position is defined as the ratio of a division's own market share in a particular industry to the market share held by the largest rival firm in that industry. For example, in Table 6-4, the relative market share of Ocean Spray premium non-carbonated beverage is 14.7/40.5 = 0.36 and Sony's market share in the music industry is 16/27 = 0.59, and the new Hilton-Promus hotel company's market share is 290,000/528,896 = 0.55. TABLE 6-4 A. Market Share of Premium Non-carbonated Beverages BRAND MARKET SHARE IN 1999 % CHANGE IN SHARE FROM 1998 Snapple 40.5 % 3.7 96 Ocean Spray 14.7 -2.9 Arizona 13.7 -2.3 Lipton 10.8 -1.3 ......

...even food items. After conducting my research I am rating Amazon as a STAR in the BCG matrix. Amazon is a well establish company that has great name recognition. The name AMAZON is not by mistake or a shot in the dark. The founder Jeff Bezos wanted a name for his company that began with "A" so that it would appear early in alphabetic order and first in internet searches. He began looking through the dictionary and settled on "Amazon" because it was a place that was "exotic and different" just as he planned for his store to be, and he believed it was the biggest river in the world, and he planned to make his store the biggest in the world. That leads me to my next reason for listing Amazon as a STAR. High market share and high market growth. By 2016 Amazon will have a market share of 20.6% of all eCommerce (according to an analysis made by Scott Davitt from Bloomberg). That is a huge market share that was made possible by Amazon’s incredible market growth. In an span of 19 years Amazon went from shipping books out of a garage to having separate retail websites for United States, United Kingdom, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, Brazil, Japan, China, India, Mexico, Poland, Netherlands, and Sweden. This makes Amazon a truly global company that can not only tap markets in the U.S but 15 other countries. That leads me to my last point for listing Amazon as a STAR company on the BCG matrix. The opportunity for growth of Amazon is exponential. They have started......

The Walt Disney Company: Mckinsey 7s Model the Entertainment King

...Cross in World War I, he came back determined to be an artist. After moving to Hollywood in 1923 with his older brother Roy, they founded Disney Brothers Studio. After diversifying as much as possible, Disney had a firm grasp on the global market share until the 1980’s where the company’s revenues began to slump in the film industry. Luckily Sid Bass invested $365 million in order to rescue the company and bring an end to all hostile takeover attempts. Disney’s billion dollar powerhouse status in the entertainment industry can be broken down and analyzed using the McKinsey’s 7S model. This model can be applied to Disney to analyze the company’s management and strategic policies. The McKinsey 7S model covers important strategic areas of operation including, strategy, structure, systems, style, skills, staff, and shared values. These seven elements need to be aligned and mutually reinforcing so that the model can be used to help identify what needs to be realigned in order to improve performance or to maintain alignment and performance. Disney Corporation has a hugely diversified strategy, that is to say, the plan devised to maintain and build competitive advantage over the competition. In 1928, after creating and losing the Oswald franchise to his distributor, Walt used a technique new to the animated television industry, synchronized sound with a cartoon. With his new character modeled after Oswald, Mickey Mouse was the star in Steamboat Willie which brought a wave of......

...Dog The Regular Coca Cola brand can be classified as a cash cow which has low growth and high market share generating high profit and cash. This can be attributed to the brands long period presence in the market as the flagship brand for Coca-Cola which has earned a significant market share but whose sales growth are low due to its maturity in the market. Due to the low growth, investments should be low and keep profits high. Diet Coke can be classified as a star in the BCG matrix with high growth and high market share. This can be attributed to its introduction into the market when the health concern over soft drinks was high and consumers needed a brand which would cater for their needs hence the high sales growth and market share. (Kotler & Armstrong 2011) Complementing the BCG matrix analysis is the product life cycle in which the two brands falls in different stages which requires different marketing strategies with Regular coca cola being at maturity stage while Diet coke is at growth stage. Regular Coca Cola At maturity stage, growth of sales has started diminishing with competition of similar carbonated drinks and the primary objective should be defending the market share while maximizing profit. (Kotler & Armstrong 2011) At this stage: Product features need to be enhanced to differentiate the product from that of competitors. Pricing need to be lowered because of the new competition. Distribution need to be more intensive and incentives may be used to......

7s Model

...The 7-S-Model By Dagmar Recklies The 7-S-Model is better known as McKinsey 7-S. This is because the two persons who developed this model, Tom Peters and Robert Waterman, have been consultants at McKinsey & Co at that time. Thy published their 7-S-Model in their article “Structure Is Not Organization” (1980) and in their books “The Art of Japanese Management” (1981) and “In Search of Excellence” (1982).  The model starts on the premise that an organization is not just Structure, but consists of seven elements: Those seven elements are distinguished in so called hard S’s and soft S’s. The hard elements (green circles) are feasible and easy to identify. They can be found in strategy statements, corporate plans, organizational charts and other documentations. The four soft S’s however, are hardly feasible. They are difficult to describe since capabilities, values and elements of corporate culture are continuously developing and changing. They are highly determined by the people at work in the organization. Therefore it is much more difficult to plan or to influence the characteristics of the soft elements. Although the soft factors are below the surface, they can have a great impact of the hard Structures, Strategies and Systems of the organization.  Description  The Hard S’s | Strategy | Actions a company plans in response to or anticipation of changes in its external environment. | Structure | Basis for specialization and co-ordination influenced primarily by......

...1 of 6 ANZMAC 2009 Adjusting the BCG Matrix for the Recession Avichai Shuv-Ami, The College of Management aviami@colman.ac.il Abstract The idea of the BCG matrix is that managers are able to evaluate their businesses using objective criteria and to develop strategies suitable to the business' particular situation. The BCG matrix can be used for portfolio analysis in times of economic crisis, but adjustments must be made. The first adjustment involves adding two more criteria – profit margins and cash flows. The second adjustment involves redefining the breaking points between the high and low of the relative market share and market growth rate averages of the industry and/or the company. The third adjustment is to add two more strategies – freeze and cut. Using all these adjustments provides better flexibility for BCG matrix analysis in a shrinking economy and recession. 1 ANZMAC 2009 Page 2 of 6 Adjusting the BCG Matrix for the Recession Introduction The BCG matrix has been used in the real world in a variety of ways for such business analysis tasks as analyzing value, business strategy toward customers, segmentation (Dibb 1995) and brand portfolio analysis. As a result of the current financial crisis, which has affected strategic market planning decisions, businesses and practitioners are using the BCG (Boston Consulting Group) matrix in a flexible manner. This paper provides several adjustments to the BCG matrix in order to adjust it to the current......

...Apple 7S Model try to explore the McKinsey 7S Framework as a part of case study, in which I have to analyze Telenor, the Norwegian telecommunication company. McKinsey and Company created this 7S framework in the early 1980s. It is well-known for analyzing organizations, for the factthat McKinsey and Company used it to analyze over 70 large organizations in 1980s. As described in the title, the framework has 7 variables: structure, strategy, systems, staff, skills, styleand shared value. These variables are categorized as soft and hard components. The hard componentsare strategy, structure and systems which are normally feasible and easy to identify in an organisationas they are normally well documented in reports such as strategy statements, corporate plans,organisational charts, etc . The remaining four ones are more difficult to comprehend. It is only possible to understand these aspects by studying the organisation very closely, normally throughobservations and/or through conducting interview (~Oh no …). Structure Structure is the skeleton, the form of shape, of organisations. It dictates the way it operates andperforms (Waterman et al., 1980). Traditionally, businesses are structured with divisions,departments and layers, in which the lower layers answer to upper layers. Today, the flat structure, where the work is done in teams of specialists, are more common. The idea is to make theorganisation more flexible and devolve the power by empowering the......

7s Model of Apple

...the model was first developed, these are the core values of the company that are evidenced in the corporate culture and the general work ethic. * Style: the style of leadership adopted. * Staff: the employees and their general capabilities. * Skills: the actual skills and competencies of the employees working for the company. Placing Shared Values in the middle of the model emphasizes that these values are central to the development of all the other critical elements. The company's structure, strategy, systems, style, staff and skills all stem from why the organization was originally created, and what it stands for. The original vision of the company was formed from the values of the creators. As the values change, so do all the other elements. How to Use the Model Now you know what the model covers, how can you use it? The model is based on the theory that, for an organization to perform well, these seven elements need to be aligned and mutually reinforcing. So, the model can be used to help identify what needs to be realigned to improve performance, or to maintain alignment (and performance) during other types of change. Whatever the type of change – restructuring, new processes, organizational merger, new systems, change of leadership, and so on – the model can be used to understand how the organizational elements are interrelated, and so ensure that the wider impact of changes made in one area is taken into consideration.

...International Marketing – 3rd Assignment Portfolio Analysis Region 4 (Italy) June 2011 1 Portfolio Analysis – The BCG Matrix The BCG Matrix is a market growth-market share matrix developed by the Boston Consulting Group, which is used to support strategic decisions in order to optimize a business portfolio with regard to new, old, innovative or established products and/or strategic business units (SBU). Its underlying theories are the experience curve as well as the product life cycle. Having classified its strategic business units, a company can develop its individual strategies for each of these SBUs. Future decisions include how to allocate investments on the SBUs, analysis about whether the respective products are still profitable or should be “killed” or given away and last but not least the need for developing new products or SBUs. The findings of the PIMS database (Profit Impact on Market[ing] Strategy) support the BCG matrix .

The aura of exclusivity built a tremendous hype and expectation over the launch of the product. The early adopters (Fad) were ready to shell out the price which was definitely on the higher side. Apple capitalised on this and was thus able to offer better prices in its second version. Reasons for changing its strategy: -Availability of 3G bandwidth and battery life upgradation -Revenue-sharing model was not generating profit -Price band was on the higher side, and the early adopters were not interested -Retail channels were a better option than single distribution channel -Exclusivity to carriers was affecting the growth -Design improvements -By launching i-phone......
