Will 4-part Seggregation Really Work?
Chander Shenoy, Business Consultant, India
Yes it would be ideal to avoid conflict of interests in SWOT analysis. But will segregation into 4-parts (implied Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, Threats taken separately) really work?
We also need to see the mindset of the analyst. Can he think of strengths without thinking of weaknesses of the same entity? Opportunities and Threats are very much interlinked too.
So I would rather suggest a collegiate mode for arriving at the S W O and T. 1-3-2018
