3. The Boston Consulting Group Matrix
The content in this section will:

  • Discuss how to identify product growth opportunities.
  • Focus on the Boston Consulting group’s product portfolio matrix (BCG matrix). This matrix focuses on long-term strategic planning for products.

Note: The ‘Boston Box’ is essentially an analytical tool for looking at the lifecycle stages of products in an organization’s portfolio.

The four quadrants introduced are:

  1. Dogs – Products with low growth or market share.
  2. Question marks or problem child – Products in high growth markets with a low market share.
  3. Stars – Products in high-growth markets with a high market share.
  4. Cash cows – Products in low growth markets with a high market share.

4. Products
This section focuses on products.

5. Price and place
It’s important to remember that products need to sell within marketplaces.

And, as such, they require a unique price for any company.

To illustrate, from a marketing perspective, prices typically are set by the following steps:

  1. Consumer analysis.
  2. Channel analysis.
  3. Competitor pricing analysis.
  4. Economic-capacity analysis.
  5. Pricing objectives.

The content in this section pinpoints these aspects. For example:

  • Where exactly are you going to sell your product?
  • What is the level of sophistication in the market?
  • Which competitors are already there, and what market share do they have?
  • How will you support your market?
  • What costs will be associated with engaging in this market?

6. Promote the product
In this final section, the content highlights that:

  1. Marketing is the process of making potential customers aware of your product and what it offers.
  2. Marketing persuades potential customers to purchase your product.

And, the content will encourage your audience to consider the following questions:

  • Who are the targets?
  • Where are they located?
  • What is their level of knowledge?
  • What message do you want to get through?
  • How will you measure the success of the promotional activity?
  • What budget do you have to resource the promotional activity?

In the final part of the course, the content:

  • Explores how to sustain a competitive advantage.
  • Differentiates products from those of the competition to achieve a level of competitive advantage.
  • Discusses how this differentiation can come from – the actual product, pricing advantages, accessibility for customers (place), and the level of productive promotional activity introduced.
