Strategies that can be Used for Star Position

The primary concern of a company that is located in a "STAR" position should be to defend that position. In fact no position is without danger or everlasting. The defense must include:
1. Achieving investments characterized by a rapid return and commensurate with the cash flow of the specific "STAR" product.
