Boston Matrix A model which analyses a businesses product portfolio. A product is place within 4 categories; Star Cash Cow Problem Child Dog
Stars Stars are successful products. They are products which is growing fast and has a high market share (lots of people want this product)
Problem Children Has a low market share, in a fast growing market. Its not clear what should be done at time? Should we advertise heavily or drop the product? Or perhaps re-develop.
Cash Cows A strong product Which brings in the money. Has a high market share, and loyal customers, but isn’t growing.
Dogs Low growth, low sales. Prospects are poor. Little point investing in. No profit = withdrawal from the market.

Such firms may prioritise broadening their product range.
