SWOT Analysis

A comprehensive analysis of regional Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats that directly affect strategy development. The analysis should thoroughly consider a region's attributes including existing assets, natural resources, current business climate, and demographics, such as educational attainment levels of workers in the region. Additionally, regions should evaluate existing infrastructures (physical, virtual, governmental, and educational) and cultural nuances (collaboration, innovation, and entrepreneurship) that will be critical to success.
