SWOT Analysis

SWOT

  • A SWOT matrix is is  an acronym for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats
  • It is a framework for analyzing your strengths and weaknesses as well as the opportunities and threats that you face.
  • This helps you focus on your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, and take the greatest possible advantage of opportunities available to you.
  • A SWOT analysis can be carried out for a company, product, place, industry, or person.
  • IT is a structured planning method that evaluates those four elements of a person, an organization, and project or business venture.

Strengths

  • characteristics of person or the business or project that give it an advantage over others
  • What advantages do you have that others don’t have (for example, skills, certifications, education, or connections)?
  • What do you do better than anyone else?
  • What personal resources can you access?
  • What do other people (and your boss, in particular) see as your strengths?
  • Which of your achievements are you most proud of?
  • What values do you believe in that others fail to exhibit?
  • Are you part of a network that no one else is involved in? If so, what connections do you have with influential people?

Weaknesses

  • characteristics of the business that place the business or project at a disadvantage relative to others
  • What tasks do you usually avoid because you don’t feel confident doing them?
  • What will the people around you see as your weaknesses?
  • Are you completely confident in your education and skills training? If not, where are you weakest?
  • What are your negative work habits (for example, are you often late, are you disorganized, do you have a short temper, or are you poor at handling stress)?
  • Do you have personality traits that hold you back in your field? For instance, if you have to conduct meetings on a regular basis, a fear of public speaking would be a major weakness.

 Opportunities

  • Elements in the environment that the business or project could exploit to its advantage
  • What new technology can help you? Or can you get help from others or from people via the various media?
  • Is your industry growing? If so, how can you take advantage of the current market?
  • Do you have a network of strategic contacts to help you, or offer good advice?
  • What trends (management or otherwise) do you see in your company, and how can you take advantage of them?
  • Are any of your competitors failing to do something important? If so, can you take advantage of their mistakes?
  • Is there a need in your company or industry that no one is filling?
  • Do your customers or vendors complain about something in your company? If so, could you create an opportunity by offering a solution?

Threats

  • Elements in the environment that could cause trouble for the person or the business or project
  • What obstacles do you currently face at work?
  • Are any of your colleagues competing with you for projects or roles?
  • Is your job (or the demand for the things you do) changing?
  • Does changing technology threaten your position?
  • Could any of your weaknesses lead to threats?
