Jul 25, 2022

Status quo

Your company is facing a challenging and stressful situation. Once a leader in the industry, you are now struggling to keep up with your competitors. This can be frustrating and disheartening for your team. It's important to take a step back and assess the current state of your industry, identify areas of opportunity for growth, and develop a comprehensive strategy that will help your company to stand out.


A Different Take

"A SWOT analysis is an essential tool for any business that wants to stay ahead of the competition. By identifying your strengths and weaknesses, you can develop strategies to capitalize on your advantages and address your challenges. When you combine this with an analysis of external opportunities and threats, you gain a comprehensive understanding of your position in the market and can develop a plan to stay ahead of the curve." - "The Business Planning Guide" by David H. Bangs Jr.


The Shift

To regain its competitive edge, your company should conduct a SWOT analysis. This will help you identify your internal strengths and weaknesses as well as external opportunities and threats. By analyzing the results, you can develop strategies to capitalize on your strengths, address your weaknesses, take advantage of opportunities, and mitigate threats. This will give you a better understanding of your position in the industry, help you identify areas for improvement, and allow you to develop a comprehensive plan to regain your competitive edge. Take a proactive approach to address your weaknesses and leverage your strengths in order to position your company for long-term success and become a leader in the industry once again.
