criterion will be judged
Current value: the current value of the criterion measured

to excellence achieved, from a threat to reality or to an
action achieved

Strengths Section of SWEATT
• This is where the competitive advantages of the organization reside. •

First pass at the strengths section may include criteria that are better listed as weaknesses.



Second and subsequent passes at the strength section should
exclude those criteria and only include criteria that represent a true competitive advantage for the organization.



Only criteria that the organization is committed to sustaining as a strength should be listed in the strength section of the SWEATT model.

Weaknesses
• Weaknesses are where the organization finds itself at a competitive disadvantage. • In order to be of value, there must be no organizational system or process that is off limits, including:


competence of the current senior leadership team



current goals of the organization



the current human and technical resource talent of the organization.

• Weaknesses initially listed may be superficial but as the SWEATT model matures the criterion of the weakness section should become more honest, and thus, beneficial.
