Hi

I have been given a SWOT form to fill in by my early years advisors for staff develpoment ... before i give these to the staff i want to be clear in my own mind how you fill them in... i may be being a little slow here but there are 4 boxs around the outside which have headings off strenghs,weaknesses, opportunities and threats and in the middle job title.... i'm not sure what they mean by threats.... i cant expect my staff to fill them in when i'm unsure myself.... does anybody else use these for their staff....

I would take it to mean that 'Threats' are the opposite of 'opportunities' ie. things which will stop you taking up the opportunities, like organising childcare, or funding, or the distance or availability of training. Strange wording though. We had threats as a column heading in our old business and operational plan, where it was used to identify threats to the continuation of the preschool itself

we used these at college. look at it as barriers to doing the job, for us it was barriers to learning, working full time, time keeping, family comitments, EAL etc

we use something simlar and it can mean any problem obstacle or barrier that will prevent or hamper the progress or developement of the staff/ setting doing their jobs or achieving their goals

 

must admit the word "threat" sounds scary but if the word was "problems" or "barriers" then you would be handing out swop or swob forms, swot sounds better acronym

Consider 'internal' and 'external' when thinking of opportunities and threats. I remember doing this for my business plan, I put 'government' as one of my 'threats' as I felt politics, H&S, political correctness, etc etc was the bain at that time. :o

 

In a broad sense, I'd say strengths and weaknesses are about self and opportunities & threats are others influences.
