Identifying strategic issues occurs after conducting the SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis. Although planners will generally all be looking at the same information (from the SWOT), there are differing opinions on which issues classify as being strategic in nature. Within the specific context of this process, what are some techniques that you would implement in more effectively identifying strategic issues and coming to consensus on how to approach them? Are there any techniques that should be avoided? Why, or why not? Consider the tension, uncertainty, and existing priorities that inevitably exist throughout a strategic planning team in crafting your response.

The SWOT Analysis assess the company is issues and growth. It is important to a strategic plan, and it allows the leaders to sit down with stakeholders to discuss goals. Using Swot analysis benefits the areas of opportunities and threats. the SWOT process allows management to take the time to understand the areas needed help. The SWOT Analysis tool is so simple, and it can improve the company issues if use correctly. The SWOT Analysis has a lot of positive to using it and a lot of negatives. Nothing is perfect. Some positives are that can be use with any company and situation, it’s simple, swot analysis can help with multiple issues, comprehensive data, no trading needed or technical skills and its low cost. Negative to swot analysis is that it’s lack of prioritizing and it can be overwhelming if leaders are not clear on what they are doing. I believe it is a good tool but it’s as good as the data we put in it.it reflect the biases and experience of the individual that is creating it.
