Using the Hoover’s online database in the Shapiro Library and annual reports, research an organization to analyze its SWOT using concepts from this module to examine two areas:
- Identify a potential threat or opportunity facing this organization. Then, identify a specific strength that this company possesses and suggest how the organization could exploit this strength to overcome the potential threat or exploit the potential opportunity you have identified in its macro environment. (So, do not suggest what the company has already done; rather, identify a specific strength it has now and a possible threat or opportunity you have identified in its macro environment that it must still address).
- Strategically, how could the organization improve on a specific weakness you have identified so that the organization becomes more competitive?
Note that you will need to find original material for your analysis and cite your sources. Identify a strength from one source like Hoover’s or an annual report and then match it to a threat or opportunity you find in another source.
Please see grading rubric attached. This assignment is a discussion post, must meet all requirements of the question and rubric.
