Market growth (Cash Usage)
Market Share (Cash Generation) How it is organized: High Low High Low Relative Market Share
(Cash Generation) Market Growth Rate
(Cash Usage) Question Marks and Dogs For this reason a company may choose to no longer invest in this SBU.
Low Market Share and Low Growth Rate Dogs These SBU does not create or use large amounts of cash. But they are CASH TRAPS! High Market Growth Rate
Low Market Share Question Marks

These SBU's are growing rapidly but do not generate a lot of cash Stars and Cash Cows Stars High Growth and High Market Share This means they generate a lot of cash but at the same time use up a lot of cash because of their high growth rate. A company should strive to have these SBU's in their organization. Low Market Growth Rate
High Market Share Cash Cows This means Cash Cows generate a lot of cash because...
