Facilitation Role - SWOT Analysis

SWOT Analysis is a tool used for understanding an organization's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats Why use it? The SWOT Analysis tool can be used in identifying an organization's strengths (S) and weaknesses (W), and examining the opportunities (O) and threats (T) it is facing. The outcome from a SWOT Analysis enables organizations to focus on strengths, minimize weaknesses, address threats, and take the greatest possible advantage of opportunities available.

How to use it? While the SWOT Analysis is typically conducted in a group session, it can also be undertaken in other forums (including electronically). Strengths: Questions to ask and answer: What do we do exceptionally well? Tips: Be realistic...and honest! Weaknesses: What could we do better? Don't tiptoe around weaknesses, but be constructive and positive in putting them on the table. Opportunities: What opportunities do we know about, but have not been able to address?

In order to assess different perceptions of a partnership we have created the Partnering Performance Indicator (PPI) which measures performance using nine key indicators of partnering, grouped under the three headings of Governance, Operations and Behaviour.

The PPI is the foundation of Socia's approach to partnership development allowing individuals and organisations to identify areas of strength and weakness and to compare their assessment with that of other partners. This tool expands the three fundamental components of partnering into nine key indicators of effective partnering. Each of these indicators is measured by the PPI. Governance Clarity of purpose. Operations Aligned systems and processes. Behaviours Collaborative leadership. These key elements inform the solutions we co-create with our clients, and provide the basis for measurement using the Socia toolset. View a sample PPI report.

International Association for Public Participation. Click here for Announcement As an international leader in public participation, IAP2 has developed the "IAP2 Core Values for Public Participation" for use in the development and implementation of public participation processes.

International Association for Public Participation

These core values were developed over a two year period with broad international input to identify those aspects of public participation which cross national, cultural, and religious boundaries. The purpose of these core values is to help make better decisions which reflect the interests and concerns of potentially affected people and entities.
