2  A SWOT analysis generates information that is helpful in matching an organization’s or a group’s goals, programs, and capacities to the social environment in which they operate  It is an instrument within strategic planning

3  Factors affecting an organization can usually be classified as:  Internal factors  Strengths (S)  Weaknesses (W)  External factors  Opportunities (O)  Threats (T) Strengths Opportunities Weaknesses Threats

4  Strengths  Internal to an organization. they are within the organization’s control  Weaknesses  Factors that are within an organization’s control that detract from its ability to attain the core goal. In which areas might the organization improve?

5  Opportunities  External attractive factors that represent the reason for an organization to exist and develop. What opportunities exist in the environment which will propel the organization?  Threats  External factors, beyond an organization’s control, which could place the organization’s mission or operation at risk. The organization may benefit by having contingency plans to address them should they occur  Classify them by their “seriousness” and “probability of occurrence”

6  What steps can you take to:  Capitalize on your strengths  Overcome or minimize your weaknesses  Take advantage of some new opportunities  Respond to the threats  Set goals and objectives, like with any other plan
