Strategic planning process

Strategic planning process: Complete a growth-share (BCG) matrix for an organization of your choice, along with a preparation worksheet in which you assess information for the matrix.

A BCG matrix, also known as a growth-share matrix, identifies departments and divisions within an organization that should receive fewer resources than others. It may also identify divisions that can be divested.

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:

  • Competency 1: Evaluate key elements of the strategic planning process.
    • Assess the key divisions of an organization.
    • Develop a BCG Matrix of an organization.

You may wish to review the suggested readings listed in the Resources as well as do your own research into completing a BCG matrix to prepare for this assessment.

Complete the following:

  • Select an organization with multiple divisions or product lines to analyze. For example, Apple would likely be considered to have multiple divisions, such as those associated with iTunes, iPods, iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers.
  • Assess your chosen organization’s key divisions. To do this, place five column headings at the top of a worksheet. Title the columns as follows: Divisions, Revenues, Profits, Market Share Position, and Industry Growth Rate. Assess your organization’s key divisions in each of these five categories. This information will help provide the foundation necessary to successfully complete a BCG matrix. Submit this worksheet as one of the deliverables for this assessment.
  • Use the BCG Matrix Template linked in the Resources under the Required Resources heading to complete a BCG matrix for your chosen organization. You might find it interesting and useful to compare and discuss your results with people from the organization.

Be sure to submit both your completed BCG matrix and your preparation worksheet for this assessment.
