THE GROWTH OF SHARE MATRIX

The Original Matrix
A company should have a portfolio of products with different growth rates and different market shares. The portfolio composition is a function of the balance between cash flows.… Margins and cash generated are a function of market share.”
—Bruce Henderson,
