Appropriate strategies are based on good analysis. I present a classic tool here.

How do I get from the problem to the solution in Communication? You can take the first step with a SWOT analysis. As we did yesterday in the lecture using the fictitious example of "EVES Clothes GmbH".

1st step: Analyze the strengths and weaknesses inherent in the decision for communication.

2nd step: collect the opportunities and threats that arise in the environment

3rd and certainly most important step: draw the right strategic conclusions, for example: Which of my strengths can I use communicatively to pay into which opportunity?

The SWOT is a classic analysis tool and was developed at Harvard Business School over 50 years ago.

It has added value because you can first break down a complex structure of interrelationships into its individual parts and then relate them back to each other.

Usually, in my experience, a nucleus for a strategy that works lies in a good SWOT.

If you want to know more about this or other tools, feel free to contact me.
