SWOT Analysis


SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats.

A SWOT Analysis is used by organisations to assess these four aspects and manage the risks and opportunities that result.

While the standards do not specify how this should be demonstrated, some organisations use a SWOT Analysis to identify and document these issues.
