- There is a tool that has been utilized by top level corporations worldwide to break down their business into four actionable pieces.
- The SWOT Analysis is a quick and straight forward way to understand your business on a deeper level.
- The acronym SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats.
- One of the easiest ways to visualize a SWOT Analysis is to draw a square separated into four quadrants or use our worksheet at exitmindset.com/tools
Breaking Down The Acronym SWOT
- You’ll need to refer back to the three principals that we have talked about in the past: your product, infrastructure, and the conversation.
- Strengths- The key is to always maintain a broad Exit Mindset so that your team is able to see the larger picture.
- Weaknesses- It’s important to remember that having a weakness does not mean that your overall business is weak, try to recognize a crack in your infrastructure or product.
- Opportunities- Where your business could grow, market share that could be taken advantage of, or even pricing structure that could be adjusted.
- Threats- Business owners sometimes struggle to identify their own threats, even if the threat is right in front of their nose.
- It’s important to think broad and be honest with yourself and with your business as a whole.
Including The Team
- Including your team and other key decision makers can help to garner a wider view with different perspectives.
- We would always suggest that you begin by creating a rough SWOT Analysis on your own.
- You can then crowdsource solutions or additions to the list using your employees or other executives.
- Remember, as a business owner you are in this endeavor alongside your employees.
- If you are struggling to make SWOT Analysis’ a regular piece of your weekly routine, try to simplify your process and focus on one or two bullet points per letter of the acronym.
- A SWOT Analysis is a great way to establish a 360-degree view of your company but relies on your ability to think honestly and trust your team!
