Ex. Marketing SWOT Analysis
Simple rules for successful SWOT analysis
  • Be realistic about the strengths and weaknesses
    of your organization when conducting SWOT
  • SWOT analysis should distinguish between where
    your organization is today, and where it could be
    in the future.
  • SWOT should always be specific. Avoid grey areas.
  • Always apply SWOT in relation to your competition
    i.e. better than or worse than your competition.
  • Keep your SWOT short and simple. Avoid complexity
    and over analysis

Example 1 - Wal-Mart SWOT Analysis.
  • Strengths - Wal-Mart is a powerful retail brand.
    It has a reputation for value for money,
    convenience and a wide range of products all in
    one store.
  • Opportunities - To take over, merge with, or form
    strategic alliances with other global retailers,
    focusing on specific markets such as Europe or
    the Greater China Region.
  • Weaknesses - Wal-Mart is the World's largest
    grocery retailer and control of its empire,
    despite its IT advantages, could leave it weak in
    some areas due to the huge span of control.
  • Threats - Being number one means that you are the
    target of competition, locally and globally.

Example 2 - Starbucks SWOT Analysis.
  • Strengths - Starbucks Corporation is a very
    profitable organization, earning in excess of
    600 million in 2004.
  • Opportunities - New products and services that
    can be retailed in their cafes, such as Fair
    Trade products.
  • Weaknesses - Starbucks has a reputation for new
    product development and creativity.
  • Threats - Starbucks are exposed to rises in the
    cost of coffee and dairy products.

Example 3 - Nike SWOT Analysis.
  • Strengths - Nike is a very competitive
    organization. Phil Knight (Founder and CEO) is
    often quoted as saying that 'Business is war
    without bullets.
  • Opportunities - Product development offers Nike
    many opportunities.
  • Weaknesses - The organization does have a
    diversified range of sports products.
  • Threats - Nike is exposed to the international
    nature of trade.

SWOT Analysis
  • SWOT analysis is a tool for auditing an
    organization and its environment.
  • It is the first stage of planning and helps
    managers to focus on key issues.

STEP4 Formulate Strategies
  • Managers need to consider the realities of
    external environment , their available resources
    , capabilities, and design strategies that will
    help the organization achieve its goals

STEP5 Implementing Strategies
  • No matter how great the organizations strategies
    are planned, performance will suffer if those
    strategies are not implemented properly

STEP6 Evaluate Results
  • Managers need to evaluate on
  • How effective have strategies been at helping
    organization reach its goals?
  • What adjustments are necessary?
  • Example
  • Anne Mulcahy, Xeroxs CEO, made strategic
    adjustments to regain market share and improve
    her company bottom line by cutting jobs, sold
    assets, and reorganized management

    and is limited to the domain of each departments
    functional responsibility.

Strategy Implementation
The 7-S McKinsey Model
  • McKinsey developed a framework for analyzing and
    improving organizational effectiveness.
  • The basic premise of the model is that there are
    7 internal aspects of an organization that need
    to be aligned if it is to be successful.

3Ss Hard Ss
  • "Hard" elements are easier to define or identify
    and management can directly influence them.
  • These are strategy statements organization
    charts and reporting lines and formal processes
    and IT systems
  • Strategy The direction and scope of the company
    over the long term.
  • Structure The basic organization of the company,
    its departments, reporting lines, areas of
    expertise, and responsibility (and how they
  • Systems Formal and informal procedures that
    govern everyday activity, covering everything
    from management information systems, through to
    the systems at the point of contact with the
    customer (retail systems, call centre systems,
    online systems, etc).

4Ss Soft Ss
  • "Soft" elements, on the other hand, can be more
    difficult to describe, and are less tangible and
    more influenced by culture.
  • Skills The capabilities and competencies that
    exist within the company. What it does best.
  • Shared values The values and beliefs of the
    company. Ultimately they guide employees towards
    'valued' behavior.
  • Staff The company's people resources and how
    they are developed, trained, and motivated.
  • Style The leadership approach of top management
    and the company's overall operating approach.

Analytical Tools in Strategic Management
  • 5 Forces Analysis
  • BCG Growth-Share Matrix
  • Product Life Cycle

Five Force Model
  • 5 competitive forces determine business
    attractiveness and profitability which manager
    assess using them

Any possibility?
How much?
Any possibility?
How much?
How intense ?
BCG Growth-Share Matrix
  • The overall goal of this ranking was to help
    corporate analysts decide which of their business
    units to fund, and how much and which units to
  • Managers were supposed to gain perspective from
    this analysis that allowed them to plan with
    confidence to use money generated by the cash
    cows to fund the stars and, possibly, the
    question marks

BCG Growth-Share Matrix
  • The natural cycle for most business units is that
    they start as question marks, then turn into
    stars. Eventually the market stops growing thus
    the business unit becomes a cash cow. At the end
    of the cycle the cash cow turns into a dog.

Stars Question Marks
  • Stars are units with a high market share in a
    fast-growing industry.
  • The hope is that stars become the next cash cows.
  • Sustaining the business unit's market leadership
    may require extra cash, but this is worthwhile if
    that's what it takes for the unit to remain a
  • When growth slows, stars become cash cows if they
    have been able to maintain their category
    leadership, or they move from brief stardom to
  • Question marks (also known as problem child) are
    growing rapidly and thus consume large amounts of
    cash, but because they have low market shares
    they do not generate much cash. The result is a
    large net cash consumption.
  • A question mark has the potential to gain market
    share and become a star, and eventually a cash
    cow when the market growth slows.
  • If the question mark does not succeed in becoming
    the market leader, then after perhaps years of
    cash consumption it will degenerate into a dog
    when the market growth declines.
  • Question marks must be analyzed carefully in
    order to determine whether they are worth the
    investment required to grow market share.

Cash Cows Dogs
  • Cash cow are units with high market share in a
    slow-growing industry.
  • These units typically generate cash in excess of
    the amount of cash needed to maintain the
  • They are regarded as staid and boring, in a
    "mature" market, and every corporation would be
    thrilled to own as many as possible.
  • They are to be "milked" continuously with as
    little investment as possible, since such
    investment would be wasted in an industry with
    low growth.
  • Dogs, also can called as pets, are units with low
    market share in a mature, slow-growing industry.
  • These units typically "break even", generating
    barely enough cash to maintain the business's
    market share.
  • Though owning a break-even unit provides the
    social benefit of providing jobs and possible
    synergies that assist other business units, from
    an accounting point of view such a unit is
    worthless, not generating cash for the company.
  • They depress a profitable company's return on
    assets ratio, used by many investors to judge how
    well a company is being managed. Dogs, it is
    thought, should be sold off.

Source http//
How to use it?
  • To use the chart, analysts plot a scatter graph
    to rank the business units (or products) on the
    basis of their relative market shares and growth
  • When the organization has a lot business units
    fall in question marks and stars, that
    organization tends to apply growth strategy as a
    corporate strategy.
  • For the organization that has most of its
    business units fall in cash cows, organization
    tends to apply stability strategy to remain its
    profit status as long as it can.
  • For the organization that has a lot of dog, may
    need to use renewal strategy to find any
    solutions for the particular bad-performance

Product Life Cycle
  • Introduction -- A product is developed and comes
    to market.
  • Growth -- Consumers learn about it and more
    people buy it. It becomes more competitive
    through modification, price adjustments, wider
    distribution and other initiatives.
  • Maturity -- The product generates profits with
    more professional productivity learning from
    experience. But problems can arise, such as the
    arrival of competing products in the marketplace.
    The product maybe modified or marketed in a new
    way to keep profits strong.
  • Decline -- Sales decrease because of market
    saturation, obsolescence or other factors.Placing
    a product on this timeline suggests strategies
    for keeping its profitability high.
  • Example If profits sag (decrease) during the
    Maturity stage, the manufacturer might offer
    discounted pricing or wider distribution.
  • It uses to analyze the profitability of a product
    at different stages of its life cycle.
