Companies usually start with a single product/ service, but as they grow and expand, their products/ services and other businesses may grow as well. The combination of all the products/ services and businesses that make up a company is called “Business Portfolio”.
Once you have many businesses and products operating under a single company, you need to find out a mechanism to analyse and evaluate those different ventures. This process is called “Portfolio Analysis”.
A successful company will always have a clear understanding of their business portfolio and they will also know how to analyse their portfolio.
Organisations are always influenced by various types of forces. These forces or factors are called “Environmental Forces/ Factors”. These factors are divided into TWO broad factors, called “External Environmental Factors” or “Macro Factors”, and “Internal Environmental Factors” or “Micro Factors”. Successful organisations always monitor these internal and external factors in order to stay on the top.
Lastly, this course will also teach you three broad organisational growth strategies. These strategies are related to “Product/ Market”, “Competitive advantage”, and “Value”.
All these topics will be covered from an academic, as well as, practical perspective.
