SWOT Analysis vs. SOAR

SWOT assesses the strategic landscape by looking at internal (strengths and weaknesses) and external factors related to the market (opportunities and threats). SOAR sets strategic goals primarily by looking at strengths and opportunities, neglecting potential threats. Both tools can complementarily have a more complete internal and external understanding of competition to set strategic goals.

A SWOT Analysis is a framework used for evaluating the business’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. It can aid in identifying the problematic areas of your business so that you can maximize your opportunities. It will also alert you to the challenges your organization might face in the future.
A SOAR analysis is a technique that helps businesses at a strategic planning level to: Focus on what they are doing right. Determine which skills could be enhanced. Understand the desires and motivations of their stakeholders.
