This weeks announcements from swiss media companys and recent strategic actions in the light of the Boston Consulting Group’s Growth/Market Share Matrix and the Product/Market-fit paradigm.
The Product/Market-fit framework is a fairly old concept from Marc Andreessen. It asks the question what correlates the most for success: the team, the product, or the market? Or, more bluntly, what causes success?
