A SWOT Analysis is used in project planning, strategic planning and other processes where agreement is needed about the current situation of a project, department or organization. It stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats.
This is the first of the LENS workshops. It can stand alone but usually is followed by the Contradictions, Proposals, and Implementaries Workshops. Sometimes a Tactics Workshop is done between the Proposals and Implementaries Workshops.
