SWOT Analysis Tool
If you are looking at making a significant change to your business, or wondering if you should launch a new product, or even if you should start a new venture, taking the time to do a SWOT Analysis will prove invaluable.
SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, and the matrix is broken into parts - internal/external, and positive/negative.
When undertaking a SWOT Analysis it is absolutely vital to be brutally honest and scrupulous in examining the environment and your own or your businesses capacities. Identifying absolutely everything won't ever be possible -- its not a crystal ball after all!-- however taking a significant amount of time to really dig into whats happening, or what may happen, will give you a much clearer perspective on whether to advance with your new idea or head back to the drawing board.
