SWOT and TOWS Matrix Diagrams

An abbreviation for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities along with threats is SWOT analysis that may be known as a structured planning method for evaluating mentioned four elements of an organization, business venture or a project. Any SWOT analysis can be carried out for either a product, a place, a company, a person or an industry. Involving defining the goals of some business engagement or some project as well as identifying both the external and the internal factors that are either successful or not in order to achieve that objective.

Going into details, the description of the SWOT analysis constituents are as follows: “strengths” are simply characteristics of the project or the business that make it an advantage over others, “weaknesses” are also the characteristics but those that place the project or the business at a disadvantage, “opportunities” are the elements in the environment that the business project or the business, in general, can exploit to its advantage and the “threats” are the elements in the environment that can cause trouble for the business project or the business itself.

Identification of the listed SWOTs is very important as it may lead to informing the later steps in planning for achieving the objective. Those who use SWOT analysis must ask and answer many SWOT-related questions that may generate the meaningful information for each of the categories of SWOT in order to make the analysis useful, finding their competitive advantage.
