SWOT analysis is a widely used strategic approach which helps the decision givers to evaluate their businesses from different aspects. We have prepared this SWOT Analysis Template in Excel so that you can easily start putting your variables and focus on your daily business.

What is SWOT Analysis?

Whether it is a new project, a business initiative or product launch, there are lots of things to be considered. Using a common framework is useful for business people to be able to speak the same “language” when they are making decisions. SWOT is a generally accepted strategic framework which categorizes the decision variables into 4 main groups: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats.

  • Strengths (Internal): What are your strongest assets? Financials, manpower or location? What makes you better than competition?
  • Weaknesses (Internal): What are the main things you need improvement in your company? Are your competitors better than you in certain areas? What do you need to avoid?
  • Opportunities (External): Is your market growing? What are the trends that will help you build your business in the future? And will you be able to take advantage of it?
  • Threats (External): Is there any potential risk regarding your business model? What is the possibility to face a lawsuit? Is your market shrinking?

Answering these questions and evaluating your business from these four different aspects will help you give healthy decisions.

  1. Lary

    What you are doing looks very interesting! I think you are on to something.
    I downloaded the free version so I could see more of what it does. I see there are only 10 rows for each area to discuss. If I were to purchase how many rows are available under each heading? Also, many times there are multiple levels under what is stated on each row. Will this SWOT allow adding drill down information under each row/statement?

    • Someka

      Hi Lary,
      We are happy to get this review!

      The modifiable version of the template comes with a password that allows you to add more rows to the template. Once you unlock the template, you may display headings and modify the template to your wish by adding new rows. We recommend adding new lines from the middle of any block so the new line format matches the other lines.

      Bonus trick: you can always make use of the “Format Painter” in Excel Home Ribbon to match the style of the new rows!

      There’s an option to have multiple lines within a cell in Excel (enter with Alt) but this should be done manually. So, you will be able to add subtitles like that to your main row. Hope this helps!

    • Someka

      Hello there!

      Modifiable version gives you the rights to modify, customize and remove the branding. That’s why we provide two different licence types to our users to use the tool as they wish. If you would like to learn more about it, check this explanation.

      Hope this helps!
