This week’s tutorial is dedicated to all of the business professionals and students out there. We’re going to make an awesome SWOT analysis on PowerPoint.

WHAT IS IT?

In essence, a SWOT Analysis is a useful technique for understanding an entity’s strengths and weaknesses while simultaneously identifying its opportunities available, and the potential threats it could face. To learn more about what a SWOT analysis is, click here.

We’re basically going to develop a SWOT analysis infographic and divide it into four quadrants on our slide using a custom set of shapes that I show you how to do in the video tutorial. From there, we’ll correlate all the information using icons, colors, and text.

The end result is a crisp looking SWOT analysis slide that your audience can use to process the information clearly and concisely.

IT EASY TO MAKE?

Yes, in fact, I did not spend more than 10 minutes on it this tutorial.

WHEN SHOULD I CONSIDER MAKING THIS SWOT ANALYSIS SLIDE FOR MY POWERPOINT DECK/PRESENTATION?

You should consider making this SWOT Analysis PowerPoint slide when you:

  • Want to display a summary of a SWOT analysis to your audience.
  • Have four separate points that you want to convey to your audience on one slide (in this case, you will remove the S, W, O, and T from the infographic and put numbers in their respective places).
WHAT WILL THIS POWERPOINT TUTORIAL COVER?

This PowerPoint tutorial will teach us how to:

  • Make a crisp looking SWOT analysis infographic on PowerPoint.
  • Use the ‘fragment’ and ‘union’ options in PowerPoint in order to make a custom shape.
  • Rotate shapes effectively to make a consistent pattern.
  • Position elements perfectly with ease on PowerPoint using the arrange options.
  • Create a strong flow of communication on your PowerPoint slide by associating color and icons to the information.
  • Take advantage of white space within our PowerPoint slide so that it is clear and concise through key positioning.
ICON CREDENTIALS

I did not make the icons that you see in this video. Here are the credentials for the four icons. You can find them over at The Noun Project.
