Elements of a SWOT analysis

SWOT analysis is the study undertaken by an organization to identify its internal strengths and weaknesses, as well as its external opportunities and threats.

  • Strengths and weaknesses are intrinsic factors. You have control over them and can make necessary changes from time to time.
  • Opportunities and threats are extrinsic. They depend on the larger market, outside your company. You can take advantage of opportunities and protect against threat through proper SWOT analysis.

As its name states, a SWOT analysis examines four elements:

  • Strengths: Internal attributes and resources that support a successful outcome.
  • Weaknesses: Internal attributes and resources that work against a successful outcome.
  • Opportunities: External factors that the entity can capitalize on or use to its advantage.
  • Threats: External factors that could jeopardize the entity's success.
