A SWOT analysis looks at these areas of an organization, team, department or other business structure to make decisions about business development and continuous improvement activities. SWOT is a comparative analysis model for evaluation. It is usually a model used for evaluation  of projects, schools, or any organization for excellence. It is also used in Research Analysis in Benchmarking projects.

SWOT model includes the following items and subitems:

? What Do WE Learned from applying SWOT Analysis

–          SWOT analysis is a very efficient tool commonly developed for benchmarking, a tracking system to gauge improvement in mission-critical areas identified with the SWOT analysis.

–          SWOT analysis creates a snapshot of the reality of the situation being examined.

–          The simple act of listing strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats documents what is really going on and creates a realistic bigger picture.

–          SWOT analysis can also be applied to personal planning in almost any area, such as finances, a career or education.

–          Finally, SWOT analysis reveals areas in need of measures, controls and well-managed processes to drive improvements toward excellence. – AAE
