The BCG Matrix is a framework that helps to assess the value of investments in the company’s portfolio management. It was created in 1968 by Boston Consulting Group founder, Bruce Henderson.
This BCG Matrix Excel Template has been constructed by four quadrants which are Stars, Question Marks, Cash Cow and Poor Dog and each of them represents the different analysis of market growth rate and relative market share.
It helps to company to understand which product the company should invest in, and which ones should be divested.
BCG Matrix Template Features:
List down all the products that you wanted to show on the matrix. If you enter brands market share and the largest competitor’s market share then the Relative Market Share column will be calculated automatically.
Once you finished the input the data in these 6 columns, it will be automatically displayed in Numerical Visualization and original BCG matrix. You can comment about what should Brand do as the next step, according to product position by helping with the explanations of the BCG Matrix.
