When/why: To get a better idea and understanding of your project or yourself as a professional, specifically four elements: your 1) strengths and 2) weaknesses (internal) and 3) opportunities and 4) threats (external). It helps you focus on your strengths, work on your weaknesses or find complementary team members, minimize threats, and take advantage of opportunities.We talk about SWOT analysis as part of one’s career strategy in our leadership and career development presentations and workshops.

How: Use the SWOT matrix and start listing strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats for your project.

Tips: Use giant flipchart post-it notes when you’re doing the SWOT analysis of your project as a group.
