Using the SWOT Model to Analyze Data
A SWOT analysis is the process of listing as many items as possible that impact a business, and categorizing them in terms of these divisions:
Strengths and weaknesses are measures of internal factors, whereas opportunities and threats usually are external items outside of a company’s direct control. Carrying out an analysis using the SWOT method helps you to focus on areas where your business is strong, and also helps you to identify future areas of concern.
