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.
