SWOT analysis is a very common and useful strategic planning tool. It is simply an acronym for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. Its an exercise often used by the team tasked with putting together the strategic plan to explore Strenghts and weaknesses of a company that are often called internal drivers as well as Opportunities and Threats that are called external drivers.

Since strengths and weaknesses come from within the organization, the strategic planning team members will be able to identify them in the interview process or perhaps in a brainstorming session set up for that purpose.The facilitator may choose to ask the members to identify strengths and weaknesses directly, or may choose to simply pull them from the interview data and list them as planning assumptions in the executive summary.

Opportunities and threats are harder to identify. Ideally, the leader should ask few subject matter experts to address the strategic planning team on relevant subjects prior to the off-site. A relevant subject is one pertaining to the organization’s strategic goals. The reason this is not done during the initial planning session is because the planning team has not yet identified what is important, i.e., their strategic goals.

What is meant by opportunities and threats?

Theoretically, anything outside the organization that impacts its future, such as actions by Congress, new laws passed..etc. But, unless they are limited to the vital few, the group may never get past the analysis stage. The vital few opportunities and threats are those that directly relate to the business the organization is in—those that, if changed today, would alter the way it does business, i.e., create a paradigm shift.

Why is a SWOT analysis important?”

Once the team reaches consensus on its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, they will want to develop new goals that will allow the organization to maximize its position relative to each. Think of this as a tune up and alignment for the company's strategy it will help identify where we are right now and which path should we be heading.
