From SWOT Analysis to Strategy

Dear Galya,
Apply the confrontation matrix (see the summary). It sometimes is a tedious job, confronting each of the S and W with all of the O and T, but it is feasible.
Tip: use imperative verbs when confronting. For example, S and O should result in investment strategies, so use words as 'invest', 'foster', 'strengthen'...

After the SWOT Analysis...

Bruno is right. Apply the confrontation matrix. Combining S&W with O&T, we can easily see four different quadrants that give the base for designing the strategies.
These 4 quadrants y are:
- Seize (or Offensive) (strengths + opportunities, your company is ready to explore the opportunities)
- Reposition (or Adjust) (strengths + threats, the company is ready to face potential risks),
- Strengthen (or Defensive) (weaknesses + opportunities, the company is not ready to take advantages of the opportunities), and
- Survive (weaknesses + threats, the company is not ready to face potential risks).
