Discussion: The SWOT Analysis

For this course, each discussion will introduce you to a business-related decision-making tool to add to your “leadership toolbox.” These tools will assist you with your future assignments throughout your program. Please conduct some research and describe the SWOT Analysis in your own words. Next, identify how you can use the SWOT Analysis in the U.S. military. List the pros/cons of using a SWOT Analysis in a business setting. Lastly, explain how this new “tool” compares to the tool you learned in the previous discussion.
