Center for Business Modeling Launches Free SWOT Analysis Template

CBM Offers First of Many Free Resources Designed to Help Business Planners Clarify Strategy and Drive Better Decision Making

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – (August 14, 2014) – The Center for Business Modeling (CBM) announced today the launch of a free resource for business planners who are trying to optimize their strategy through competitive analysis – a free, downloadable SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) template. A SWOT analysis is a subjective assessment of internal (strengths and weaknesses) and external (opportunities and threats) factors that helps drive strategic clarity and better decision-making.

Using CBM’s free resource, business strategy leaders can:

  • Gain a better understanding of their competition
  • Ask tough questions internally that reveal strategic blind spots
  • Set the stage for positive change and impact

“The CBM SWOT template is a no-nonsense way for leaders to have honest conversations with each other about how well they can compete—and organize the findings to improve,” said Michael James Smyth, CBM’s Chief Operating Officer. “This is one of many free resources CBM will offer to help executives and entrepreneurs plot a clear path to success with intuitive planning tools.”

Several more free offerings will be available to those who register on the CBM home page. Future offerings from CBM will include cloud-based planning tools and a business modeling community, where users can share best practices and help themselves mitigate planning risk, measure against industry baselines and build defensible, realistic plans that are easy to develop and present.
