Conduct a SWOT analysis using the information you gathered in Module 1 regarding your chosen process. Review the various readings to identify the structure of a SWOT analysis. This SWOT analysis will be conducted on the current processes in place for your organization that are related to your chosen management issue. You should clearly highlight the weaknesses as you will need to convince the board that the process should be changed.
After completing your SWOT analysis, provide a short one-page summary on how you plan to use your SWOT as a management tool when improving or changing the current policy. You should also be addressing how your management theory will help you apply your SWOT analysis.
