What is SWOT Analysis?
No matter the industry you’re in, a SWOT analysis is a simple yet extremely effective strategic analytical tool suited to all businesses. A completed SWOT analysis will provide an accurate summary of your business’ strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
How a SWOT Analysis Can Provide Value to Your Business
A SWOT analysis helps to focus your strengths, minimise your threats and seize the opportunities available to you and can act as a powerful aid for management to develop the best strategy for your business.
While most commonly used for business strategy as a whole, SWOT analysis will provide value in other situations too. If you are launching a marketing campaign or a new product for example, then a SWOT analysis could be tailored specifically towards this event.
How Often Should I Review My SWOT Analysis?
Whether you’re new or established, it is likely you will have already completed a SWOT analysis at some point. Many organisations fail to update their SWOT analysis regularly, which is a huge mistake. Especially in fast paced industries, you will find that your results will differ substantially in just a year. If you’re not constantly re-evaluating your position, then you may fall short to competitors who are.
