What Is a Strategic Analysis Tool?

Strategic analysis tool helps to research and examine the business environment within a company and how it operates. It’s an integral part of strategic planning as it helps identify the organizational areas that are performing well and need improvement.

How to do a Strategic Analysis?

  • Start with an environmental scan analyzing internal and external factors that may affect the operation and growth of your organization.
  • A SWOT analysis can help assess the strengths and weaknesses within the organization and opportunities and threats outside the organization. You can also do a PESTLE analysis to examine the external factors.
  • Invite a team made of departmental heads, stakeholders, process owners etc. to provide their input for the analysis via Creately real-time collaboration features.
  • Identify the strategies currently in place and examine their effectiveness in achieving your goals. Also check whether they align with your mission and vision.
  • If the strategies are failing to meet their goals, come up with and consider alternative strategies where you should make changes to business processes, capital structure etc.
  • Evaluate the alternative strategies you came up with and identify the most profitable and viable strategy.
  • Once you have selected the strategy that you will implement, create an action plan, allocate resources, budget and time, and assign tasks to relevant team members.
  • Once the strategies are implemented, monitor them constantly to assess how successful they are. Note down underperforming areas and make necessary changes.
