The SWOT Analysis, thought to be developed by Albert Humphrey in the 60s, is a universal tool to help a person or an organization in achieving a set of goals by defining their Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats, interpreting the input data correctly, and providing methods on how to achieve them. The four parameters could be divided into two categories: (1) internal factors which include strengths and weaknesses that could be controlled by a person, and (2) external factors which include opportunities and threats that could come from the outside environment. This method has been used since its conception largely for management and business strategizing.
