SWOT analysis is a tool commonly taught in business school to examine internal strengths and weaknesses as well as external opportunities and threats. It was originally conceived to help corporations formulate high-level business strategy, but it has proven useful in a broad range of situations. SWOT is an excellent tool for evaluating business opportunities such as starting a new business, entering a new market, pursuing a new development project, or allocating resources in areas such as recruiting or training.
This workshop will teach you how to do a basic SWOT analysis, using your career or your company’s business as a practical application. You will learn a valuable analytic tool and gain insight into your own career or company.
Chris Sims is a teacher, coach, facilitator, consultant, coder, agile evangelist, and all-around geek. He is the founder of the Technical Management Institute and the Bay Area Engineering Managers Support Group. He enjoys teaching engineers how to lead people, projects, and teams.
