The aim of the Growth Share Matrix is to help a corporation efficiently allocate its ressources (financial + HR) to its different business units or product lines.

This concept was developed by Bruce D Henderson, the Founder of BCG and HBS graduate. In the words of Bruce D Henderson himself, “To be successful, 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.” This is what the matrix helps businesses do.
