Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities Threats

A SWOT Analysis is a management tool used to review the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to a business.

This tutorial defines a SWOT Analysis, explains how to find a SWOT report, and highlights why a SWOT is included in a company case study. If you are familiar with the SWOT process, proceed to step 3 and learn how to use a database called Business Source Complete (BSC) to locate a SWOT report.
