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:
