What is a SWOT analysis?

What is a SWOT analysis?

A SWOT analysis is a strategic planning tool used by businesses to assess and evaluate the organization's current internal Strengths and Weaknesses and identify external Opportunities and Threats.  It is a valuable tool used in strategic planning, whether for an organization, a project, or a product or service.

SWOT reports written about public companies are generally easier to find than reports about private companies. For information about a private company, this may be available within a SWOT report for the parent company, if the parent company is public.
