Problem definition: The strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) analysis is one of the strategic planning approaches used to evaluate the status of a plan or strategy. The strengths describe which aspects of a topic or part of an organization are superior and what distinguishes it apart from the competitors. The weaknesses stop the effectiveness of a strategy at its desired level. Moreover, the opportunities indicate the desirable external factors which can provide the target strategy with a competitive advantage, while threats point out to the factors that are likely to harm the organization or its strategies. It should be noted that this method, in addition to the strategic planning, is generally employed in the situation analysis. In fact, this analysis is considered as an effective tool for identifying the environmental conditions and internal capabilities of a system.
