SWOT Analysis as a self-evaluation exercise

The filled out SWOT analysis sheet for a product sales at Sanergy.

I am working on a project to diversify the income streams of micro-entrepreneurs in the community in which we work. I am actually well into this project and I wasn’t attempting to solve a problem, per say, but I thought that some of the tools could help me think through the next few stages of it. I used the SWOT Analysis tool as a self evaluation exercise, but decided to change it a bit, by pretending I had filled it for my project 2 months ago.


This tool worked well and helped me view my project as holistically as possible and I think it would have been useful if I used it in the beginning of the project.

    Thanks for the concepts you discuss through this web site. In addition, numerous young women who become pregnant do not even seek to get health insurance because they are concerned they won’t qualify. Although a few states now require that insurers produce coverage despite the pre-existing conditions. Fees on these kinds of guaranteed programs are usually bigger, but when considering the high cost of health care it may be your safer way to go to protect one’s financial potential.
