<p><b><i>Context</b></i><br>
1. Good morning. We want to do a very quick and not very systematic review of the past year using the SWOT categories. This is not really an analysis but a review.<br><br>
<i><b>Steps</b></i><br>
1. We have four worksheets. <i>Show the worksheets.</i> They have on them Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. Strengths and Weaknesses are internal and Opportunities and Threats are external.<br>
2. Take a minute and list on the sheet 4 or 5 items for each area. These can be from this past year or this coming year.<br>
3. Select the most important Strength, Weakness, Opportunity and Threat on the appropriate sheet.<br>
4. <i>Put them on the appropriate flip chart paper.</i><br>
5. Now I would like for you to read through your 4 sheets. <br>
6. Are there any Strengths that are not up there? <i>Write in the insight. Repeat process for the Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats.</i>
7. Which of the Strengths are the most important? Which is next? <i>(Any of a number of prioritizing processes can be used here.)</i><br>
8. <i>Go on to the Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats and prioritize.</i><br><br>

<b><i>Conclusion</i></b><br>
1. Which ones were a little surprising?<br>
2. What are some common themes?<br>
3. What is an insight from the year? <br>
4. What are some implications for this coming year?</br>
