Policy Trends And Ethics In Nursing

A SWOT analysis is used as a strategic planning technique by businesses and/or individuals to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to a planned project. It identifies conditions that are favorable or unfavorable to achieving the goal of the project by grouping them into categories:

Strengths and Weakness are frequently internally related, while Opportunities and Threats commonly focus on environmental factors.

  • Strengths: characteristics of the projected solution that give it an advantage over others.
  • Weaknesses: characteristics that place the projected solution at a disadvantage relative to others.
  • Opportunities: elements in the environment that the projected solution could exploit to its advantage.
  • Threats: elements in the environment that could cause trouble for the projected solution.
