SWOT Analysis

Conduct a SWOT analysis (see below) of your agency, division, or unit with a group of colleagues. Typically, this takes place within a retreat atmosphere to allow for a holistic and consensus building approach to the process.

S = Strengths:
What internal strengths does your agency, division, or unit possess?
W = Weaknesses:
What internal weaknesses inhibit your agency, division, or unit?
O = Opportunities:
What external opportunities are available to your agency, division, or unit?
T = Threats:
What are the external threats potentially affecting your agency?

A SWOT analysis can then inform a strategic action plan addressing the findings.

GOAL:

To analyze the strengths, weakness, opportunities, and threats facing an organization in a systematic manner to inform the development of a strategic action plan.
