Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) Analysis is a business management tool used to evaluate an organization’s strength’s, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. The tool is used to produce a model that can serve to provide direction in the development, formulation, and evaluation of project management plans. Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) Analysis is an important step in the planing process that is often undervalued and omitted in constructing the project management plan. This basic management tool is straightforward and easy to use. Basically, factors are divided into internal and external issues. Based on the analysis of the information provided by the model, project management can better decide if the information gathered is something that will assist in accomplishing its objectives. Conversely, Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) Analysis can also identify potential obstacles to success, as well as faults in the plan that must be addressed, controlled, or eliminated if the desired results are to be achieved.
In order for the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) Analysis to be effective, project management must do more than simply identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats involved. Risk management demands that it is necessary to avoid, eliminate, or at the very least, minimize identified weaknesses and threats. Weaknesses should be closely scrutinized in order to determine whether or not it is possible to convert them into assets. Similarly, threats should be closely examined for the opportunity of building strength in areas where they stood, once they have been eliminated. Strengths and opportunities should be closely studies as well in order to maximize their effectiveness. Project management would be well advised to take advantage of this simple, cost…...

...My SWOT analysis Nomin Amarsaikhan /Mina/ 101183046 Marketing Management Dr. Wan-Tran, Huang 01 October, 2012 Business Administration department, Asia University A SWOT analysis is used to identify the positives and negatives inside the organization (S-W) and outside of it, in the external environment (O-T). The name says it: Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, and Threat. Developing a full awareness of the situation may help us with both strategic planning and decision-making on our organizations. Strengths and weakness, the internal factors, are represented strengths with respect to one objective may be weaknesses for another objective. External factors are the opportunities and threats raised by the external environment to the organization and person itself. However, the criticism on SWOT is over evaluating, but its usage is not confined to profit-seeking organizations and useful for every kind of objectives.

Original sin is still present, but God, being free and independent of us, freely chooses to save infants who are not capable of making a choice to commit their lives to Christ. Introduction Infant salvation is a complex issue, sometimes controversial and a topic of much debate within Christendom. The issue of infant salvation first arose with the institution of infant baptism, done so that infants who died would be baptized, and thus saved in case of death. Though that debate has subsided in recent years, it is not due to......

...principles and companies, such facts and details as would be necessary to the understanding of the problem) Southwest Airlines was a market share leader in 2010 in domestic air travel in the U.S., and has continued to be the only carrier in the U.S to remain consistently profitable. The carrier has been able to sustain its position, growth, profit and competitive advantage through the implementation and dedication to a low-cost leader strategy which focuses on low operating costs, low fares, and excellent customer service which has become a major part of its culture and marketing. Despite the low costs strategy, and continually reported profit, the carrier has lost money between 1980 through 2009 as evidence by combined annual losses exceeding combined annual profits by $43.2 billion. Although it is apparent that the carrier’s competitive cost advantage has shrunk and operating costs are beginning increase, their low cost strategy has allowed them to remain leaders for example by adding 28 million passengers annually since 2000, where others lost them. One way that the carrier may once again realize high costs savings is through the possible acquisition of AirTran. Analyses: (Choose 2 forms of analysis which flow logically from the problem and present these in detail. For example, if the problem deals with profitability then the choice could be pro forma budget and IRR or WCC.

All I Do Is Believe

...Bobby Skitt Mr. Johnson English IV 21 October 2013 All I Do is Believe My heart was beating like a drum as the coaches were walking over to let me know my fate. I gave my total effort out on the ice that day. Would it be enough, though, or would I come up short? I wanted this more than anything, and I would have been crushed if I did not accomplish my goal. It was my burning desire to make the Affton American’s Pewee AA ice hockey team. The news was coming whether I wanted to hear it or not. All I had left to do was believe, and that was exactly what I did. The days leading up to the tryout, however, I did nothing but constantly worry. The worrying got so bad that it started to affect my performance at school. My dad would try to calm me down with talks after school, but they were barely helping me. As the day inched closer, I was as worried as a mother sending her baby boy off to war. If I remember correctly, it was a Saturday, but the day of the week did not matter, because it was the day of my tryout. It could have been my birthday, and I still would have only been thinking about that tryout. About an hour before I had to leave, my mom and dad called me into their bedroom. I thought they were going to tell me some bad news. Instead, they just wanted to calm me down and pray with me. My mom took my hands and spoke wonderful words to God, asking Him to watch over me and telling Him that we were leaving my fate in His hands. I will not lie, I cried......

Do All Teams Need a Leader

...cultural and professional identities, - the importance of emotional intelligence, - the vital role of adequate support systems. Team leaders need updated global competencies which they may not have learned in business school. Multicultural Teams are Complex Cross-cultural knowledge is an obvious pre-requisite for working with any team whose members come from different cultures. We acquire this knowledge from our reading, from our studies, from company-sponsored seminars and most importantly by maintaining a very high level of self-awareness when we step outside our own cultural boundaries. However managing cross-culturally is complex because real business issues are complex and often require more than a linear solution. So, how do we avoid the trap of over-simplifying the complexity of the issues faced by international teams? Let’s agree that there is more to understanding an international team than being aware of the diversity of national cultures represented by the members. We know from experience that there are key differences found on any team which may include gender, race, individual personality, cognitive and emotional intelligence, educational, and occupational backgrounds. Consulting to international teams and executives has taught me that over-emphasizing the national cultural differences found in a team can sometimes be too one sided. Understanding cultural difference is key but, alone, is not sufficient to achieve a highly performing team. Other......

...significant stakeholders (e.g. shareholders, senior management, creditors, customers, suppliers, etc.). As well, the more obvious strengths and weaknesses, and a good cross-section of opportunities and threats (SWOT) can be identified and appropriately categorized. The initial scan should then be followed by a more careful study using some of the analytical tools mentioned below, in order to find the less obvious and often more pertinent strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats pertaining to the situation at hand. The final step will be to consider the comprehensive list of these factors that have been generated (reproduced in an exhibit to your report), and to focus on the most important and relevant items that a) have caused the current situation (weaknesses), or b) must be solved (weaknesses) or mitigated (threats) in order to rectify the current situation, or c) must be drawn upon in order to come to a viable resolution to the problem (opportunities and strengths). This final list will comprise the items that you will emphasize in the body of your report. SWOT Analysis A major starting point in solving a business problem is to take a close look at the environment within which an organization finds itself. One of the methods commonly used in such a situational analysis is “SWOT” (an acronym for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) which considers the strengths and weaknesses in the internal environment as well as the opportunities and threats in the......

How Do We All Learn

...Learning effectively through methods There are many process that we all go through in order to learn. Everyone one is different, everyone has a unique way of learning or multiple ways of learning. It is very common for someone to have multiple ways of learning. I’m going to describe how as a student, I go about learning. One of my many ways of learning would be repetition. I am a visual learner who benefits from seeing things repeatedly; namely, I learn successfully from being able to have a visual representation to which I can refer to. However, my ideal ways of learning would have to be repetition, visualizing, and kinesthetic learning style. For me repetition is very useful when trying to retain information. Repetition emphasizes many aspects. For example; if I need to remember a very difficult word, I would repeat the word three times or more to be able to retain the word in my head. Sometimes when I’m trying to retain too many words all at once, I forget some of the words in the process. Also repeating sentences works as well too. By the way, this method may not work for everyone, it all depends on the person. Repetition is a very common technique known to everyone and may be used by anyone who chooses to. On the other hand, everyone has use repetition once or multiple time in their life whether they know it or not. For example, when I was young I would keep trying to learn how to ride a bike. No matter how many times I fail down I kept trying until I succeed, this......

...Dustin von Soosten OPR with Mrs. Burnett September 27, 2010 English B/D “Am I doing all I need to do? Am I being the person I want to be?” I have been having a hard time for a while now, fir many months I felt like I lost my purpose in life. Not being able to achieve my goals of becoming a United States Navy SEAL, I was in distraught, I had no direction anymore, lost is where I was. My GPS was taken from me, I could not find my way, for a while to believe that I was going to be a firefighter, or go into the Coast Guard. Those careers where just fumes, my determination could blow away with them easily, they give me peace. I no desire for any other career what so ever. Although, for months I had actually believed that it wasn’t in the cards for me to do what I had always wanted to do, that I was not destined to a US Navy SEAL. About two in a half to three weeks ago the fire inside me pretty dim, I had really felt like it burnt out for good. Then one afternoon at school during fourth block, that period is free for me, I heard from Mr. Hoffman that there is a fair going on in the library, I looked and there was nothing. Right after that college “sponsors” came around the corner, so I went in and the four branches of the US Military were already present. I saw the US Navy there, and immediately I had to check it out, I talked to both of the recruiters there and about how I wanted to be a US Navy SEAL, they were extremely interested.

...SWOT ANALYSIS STRENGTH: Tesco has become the largest brick and mortar grocery chain in the U.K. Tesco had grown from stride to stride to become the largest brick and mortar grocery chain in the U.K. In 1995 it overtook the venerable Sainsbury’s, an entrenched leader in the market since the late 1800s. Since then, there had been no looking back for Tesco. For the fiscal year 2000, Tesco reported sales of £18.7 billion and net income of £1 billion, an increase of 11%. Much of this meteoric growth resulted from a combination of astute real estate planning, excellent location strategy, creative execution of multiple format stores and above all its ability to keep pace with prevailing customer trends. To become a market leader a company has to obtain a proper planning. Location is a very important factor in the success of an organization. It is very important to choose it wisely. If a company has multiple stores its customer accessibility will be increased. It will be very easy for customers to go to the stores if there are many outlets. The level of customer satisfaction will also be increased. Tesco serves its customers with cheap price and best quality.. “Pile it high and sell it cheap” was the slogan that launched Tesco and the company was leaving no stone unturned to offer its customers the best value for their money Tesco introduced a variety of innovative practices that have increased efficiency and reduced operating cost over......

Do All Business's Need to Globalise to Succeed

...The business world is becoming increasingly global. As a result of this many companies such as costa coffee & Dyson, have changed their strategies in relation to the markets they target or where they produce. Does the increasing global nature of business mean that all organizations need to change their strategies significantly to achieve higher profits. Justify your answer with reference to Costa Coffee, Dyson and or other organizations that you know. (18) Globalisation of companies can have serious advantages that can mean a companies success is huge! as well a company can have massive success with out giving their product to the global market! In 1975 Nike moved its manufacturing overseas, since then it now has over 44 over seas factories, where there products are made! Nikes idea to use global labour to make there product (s) global meant that Nike now had a larger captive market, not just the market back in America, where the HQ is based. By moving there manufacturing overseas Nike managed to take advantage of low manufacturing costs meaning that a higher profit margin can be obtained! If Nike would be manufacturing in America or developed countries then the price of their products would be extremely high, and in the competitive market this would not work as their competitors would be undercutting Nike. Globalisation can bring a companies product back to life, if a companies product is in a saturated market then they may not be making enough money to keep...
