• Provides a useful insight into the likely opportunities and problems associated with a particular product. • Enables management to assess the strength of a company. Disadvantages of this model

•tacey, R. D (1996) criticises the approach from three aspects. • acmillan, H and Tampoe, M, (2000) point out that Portfolio analysis may have some of the more important snags in practice. • Wensley(1981) points out that in BCG matrix there are problems of market definition and measurement. • Wind and mahajian(1981) believe that BCG matrix is a rigid framework and has no adaptability. • Nicholls(1995) says that the BCG matrix can not give guidance on the relative merits of any claim on resources. •Abell and hammond (1979) identify a number of weaknesses in BCG model. Assumes market growth rate. A firm may grow the market.

High market share/Growth is not the only success factor.
Linkage between market share and profitability is questionable.

Criticism
The relation between market share and profitability is questionable, since the development of the market share can require high investments. Beyond that the beginning sets a doubtful high weight on market growth and ignores the Potenzial of declining markets. The matrix could be supplemented therefore downward, thus for shrinking markets, around two fields: Been subject one (Under Dogs, sinking growth with low market share) and loser (Buckets, sinking growth with high market share).

...In mathematics, a matrix (plural matrices) is a rectangular array of numbers, symbols, or expressions, arranged in rows and columns.[1][2] The individual items in a matrix are called its elements or entries. An example of a matrix with 2 rows and 3 columns is
Matrices of the same size can be added or subtracted element by element. But the rule for matrix multiplication is that two matrices can be multiplied only when the number of...

After obtaining knowledge from the Matrix, Plato's Allegory of the Cave or The Republic and the first Mediation from Descartes, I see that there are a few likenesses and contrasts. I would need to say that The Matrix and Plato's hole purposeful tale were more comparable because the individuals included in both stories, they existed in this present reality where they were being cheated about what the fact of the matter was. In the Matrix, once...

Arduino 56x8 scrolling LED Matrix
Scrolls any message on up to seven (or more?) 8x8 LED matrices.
Adjust the bitmap array below to however many matrices you want to use.
You can start with as few as two.
The circuit:
* 1 8-bit shift register (SN74HC595) to drive the rows of all displays.
* N power 8-bit shift registers (TPIC6C595) to drive the columns (1 chip per display)
* N 8x8 LED matrix display (rows=Anodes, cold=cathodes)
* N * 8 470ohm...

...Postmodernism in The Matrix
Postmodern writing evolved around WWII in response to Modernism that dominated the 19th c. The two writing styles share many characteristics, but the defeated modernist wallows in his realizations whereas the postmodernist offers a light or hope in conclusion. There is still a sense of foreboding for the postmodernist concerning science and technology. However, they are able to forge past their distrust, accept it as a logical progression, and...

Coming to the realization that your entire life is all an illusion would be frightening, painful, and hard to believe. This is the main concept of the movie, The Matrix. The main character, Neo, is told that the world he has been living in is nothing more than a simulation controlled by a computer program. After being told this information, Neo, being apprehensive at...

...same argument as above, we see that: 5000(0.3) + 10, 000(0.8) = The number of people who don’t ride the bus next year. = b2 This system of equations is equivalent to the matrix equation: M x = b where 0.7 0.2 0.3 0.8 5000 10, 000 b1 b2
M= 5500
,x =
and b =
. For computing the result after 2 years, we just use the same matrix M , however we use b 9500 in place of x. Thus the distribution after 2 years is M b = M 2 x. In fact, after n years, the...

...Understanding the Model
Market Share and Market Growth
To understand the Boston Matrix, you need to understand how market share and market growth interrelate.
Market share is the percentage of the total market that is being serviced by your company, measured either in revenue terms or unit volume terms. The higher your market share, the higher the proportion of the market you control.
The Boston Matrix assumes that if you enjoy a high market share you will be...

...be seen depicted throughout history in sci-fi movies. In the particular movie entitled, The Matrix, directed and written by brothers Laurence and Andrew Wachowski in 1999. This film shows a new form of technology, not only in through the plot but also its special affects and symbols. The upcoming millennium also marked a perfect time to release such a complex film for the public viewing pleasures. The Matrix takes place nearly century ahead in the future. The human...
