Boston Matrix for Motorola

Boston Consulting Group (BCG) is a management tool which categorizes the product portfolio with four different labels such as star, Dogs, Cash cows and question marks. Here BCG tool is used to determine the market growth and market share of Motorola.

Labels in BCG tool refer to:
  • Stars- High market growth and share
  • Dogs- Low market growth and share
  • Cash flow- Low market growth and high market share 
  • Problem child- High market growth and low market share
 Figure shows Boston Matrix 

Initially Motorola was a star that means it attained high market growth and high market shares because of low competition. But in recent times, it fell in problem child area i.e, high market growth and low market share due high competition from new entrants.
