Strengths targeted bundle, efficiently mitigate weaknesses the resources and potential for success a school can be first generally with the method of assess strengths / weaknesses analysis. The advanced SWOT analysis into account in addition to strengths (= ad) and weaknesses (weaknesses) occasions/chances (opportunities) and threats/risks (threats). On this broader basis can attempts be strategic thrusts for the school”to develop, which can be worn to the overview and coordination in a 4-fields-matrix. This is an axis for environment factors in a positively occupied field (= opportunities) and divided into a negative occupied field (= threats). An axis is analog for influencing factors in a positively occupied field (= ad) and divided into a negative occupied field (= weaknesses). The term SWOT then consists of the first letters of these 4 fields. In the box for the combination of strengths and opportunities to be thus registered like strategies, which used the strengths of the school, to take advantage of the opportunities.
In the box for the combination of strengths-threats, ST strategies are entered with which our own strengths will be used to ward off potential risks. In the box for the combination of weaknesses and opportunities, where strategies are entered by use of opportunities / opportunities to overcome the weaknesses of the school. WT strategies are entered in the field for the weakness-threat combination, should be mitigated the weaknesses and risks avoided. The SWOT analysis is completed, if appropriate strategies are included in each combo box. Target must be to support the natural strengths of the school and to mitigate potential weaknesses. It depends on finding suitable uses for the individual existing conditions and to implement. Own viable and consistently built/thought-out concepts not only with general rates, but with verifiable Data, to be able to underpin numerical results in detail, creates trust and proves competence (not least in the municipal decision makers).
