Background of the SWOT analysis tool

The strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) analysis tool forms the heart of identifying the right products to develop. Developed from the marketing community the SWOT analysis tool can be applied to any goods, services and processes that are under consideration. The SWOT analysis tool has also been successfully deployed in other business situations where several options or solutions are being considered.

The SWOT analysis tool

The SWOT analysis tool (combined with brainstorming activities and other investigative methods) essentially lists the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats relating to an area of interest. For example a potential new product compared to that of a competitor. The main thrust of this tool is to turn all the identified strengths, weaknesses and threats into opportunities. These opportunities can become business strategies which can be prioritised and then be implemented to give a competitive business advantage.

This on-site training course starts with an overview of the SWOT analysis tool and the SWOT analysis process. The training course then guides the trainee through the step by step process of how to conduct a SWOT analysis on goods, services and processes.
