__________________________________________________________________ Quick Take  from planOnline.org  Conducting a SWOT   or (OTSW)  What is it? The granddaddy of focus group data gathering processes is the traditional SWOT and its updated  offspring, OTSW Analysis. You can SWOT (or OTSW) a concept, a program, a department, a school, or a  new initiative. You can even SWOT a person, although one must be careful when doing so.  When doing SWOT Analysis, remember that the S and the W are INTERNAL and the O and T are  external. Traditionally, facilitators begin with the organization’s  Strengths  and  Weaknesses  and then  move out to the external  Opportunities  and  Threats .  Recent thinking prompts consideration first of the  opportunities and threats existing in the “outside world” against which the institution can leverage its  strengths and find conviction to correct its weaknesses. We like this reversal of the traditional order  because it helps an organization place itself in context. Method Group Process Technique: Brainstorming Purpose: To generate a large quantity of ideas in response to a stated problem or question.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
