Components of a SWOT Analysis [WLOs: 1] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4]
Prior to beginning work on this discussion, complete the Week 1 Pre-Test, watch the Simulation Overview Video Part 1, and the video from your Chairman Stan Sloan after you have logged into the simulation. In 150 words or more, what information or detail is important to add to a SWOT analysis in general? How can a complete SWOT help a company succeed? These thoughts should be qualitative and generic – not discussing/providing specific applications of how you may have gleaned competitive advantage (e.g., listing the SWOT components applicable to Hisco).
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your fellow students’ posts in a substantive manner and provide information or concepts that they may not have considered. Support your position by using information from the week’s readings. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful and interactive discourse in this discussion forum. Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 11:59 p.m. (Mountain Time) on Day 7, and respond with robust dialogue to anyone who replies to your initial post.
