SWOT Analysis

SWOT analysis is used to understand the areas of strength, weakness, opportunity and threat.

The purpose of a SWOT Analysis is to identify the key areas which are currently causing concern as well as those that work particularly well. This then can provide some insight into areas of opportunity to make improvements.

It is beneficial to consider SWOT from both an internal and external perspective.
