Conducting a SWOT Analysis allows an organization’s stakeholders to brainstorm about what he or she believes are the organization’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT). It is an opportunity to share all kinds of thoughts and ideas about all aspects of the organization’s function. The feedback will assist PCB leadership in determining exactly where we are as an organization and help us plan for where we want to be in the future.
As you read through and answer the questions, please don’t limit yourself to just one answer. Feel free to answer each question with a mini list of ideas. Once you’ve gone through the questions, if you have any additional feedback, please share those comments.
