The present paper aims to highlight from a theoretical standpoint the strategic business unit concept and its strategic implications over company’s performance and competitiveness. Moreover, the paper will emphasize that the best business portfolio is the one that provides optimal consistency of company strengths and weaknesses and opportunities of marketing environment.
