SWOT Analysis Partnership

Page history last edited by kersti.rohtmets@... 1 year, 7 months ago

 

1st-year Partnership SWOT analysis.

 

A SWOT analysis will provide us with an analysis of our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats as a partnership and it can help us to develop a second-year project and our strategic plan. 

 

The Questions:

 

Strengths: 

  • What are the advantages your partnership has?
  • What do you do well? (What do you boast about?)

Weaknesses: 

  • What could be improved in your partnership?
  • What is done badly (or has been embarrassing to the partnership)?
  • What should be avoided?
  • What things should your partnership be doing that it can't?


Opportunities:

  • Where are the good choices facing your partnership?
  • What are the next steps?
  • What are the trends in your community that your partnership could be in a position to make the most of?
  • Are there new opportunities from the community, funding sources, scholar community that could help the partnership?

 

(Useful opportunities can come from such things as changes in technology, changes in government policy, or changes in social patterns, population profiles, or lifestyle changes)

Threats:

  • What obstacles does your partnership face?   
  • What is your school demand like? Are your students less satisfied or more satisfied? Do you need to re-target your partnership or its activities?
  • Do you have finance or cash-flow problems? Could you do a better job of approaching grants or fundraising opportunities?
  • Is partnership knowledge spread broadly, or would a gap be left if individuals moved on? Have you ensured you have "deputies" or ways to provide the project sustainability? 

 

Post-Swot Discussion 

  • At the end of the session, pull all the answers together. The coordinator will collect your analysis.
