Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats
A S.W.O.T. analysis guides you to identify your internal attributes and skills that can help you succeed or hinder your progress. It also helps you identify the external resources and environments that can serve as catalysts of your success or obstacles in your path toward success. The process is pretty simple, but it is a vital step when you want to:
- Explore possibilities for new efforts,
- Solve complex problems,
- Make decisions or clarify direction for choices you have to make,
- Determine areas where you can make change, or
- Make adjustments to your goals or plans as new opportunities or interests present themselves.
Now you try: Complete your own S.W.O.T. Analysis!
To complete your own S.W.O.T. Analysis, find pictures that represent the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats in your life. For each picture you find, locate the picture on a Cartesian coordinate system (see the one below!). The x axis will range from weaknesses to strengths, and the y axis will range from threats to opportunities. As you place each picture on the Cartesian plane, make sure to consider where the picture best fits on the plane and provide a caption that explains why you placed the picture in that quadrant.
