SWOT Analysis [C]

A SWOT analysis can be used to compare different options or solutions and explore the advantages and disadvantages of each. For each option/solution under consideration, the group should brainstorm four characteristics:

  • Strengths - what are the advantages of this solution?
  • Weaknesses - what are the disadvantages of this solution?
  • Opportunities - what external elements e.g. in the community, wider society, local organisations and the environment could positively affect this solution?
  • Threats - what external elements e.g. in the community, wider society, local organisations and the environment could negatively affect this solution?
