Managing Portfolios of Products
Most businesses offer more than one product or service. The offering of multi-product portfolios creates unique issues for the analysis of the financial performance of marketing because there may be positive or negative synergies across products. As a result marketing activities and expenditures for one product may influence outcomes for other products. This chapter explores the issues associated with evaluating marketing performance in a multi-product context.
