This week, you will complete an ethical SWOT analysis of the technology you have selected for your Course Project. In industry, a SWOT analysis is used to create a structured assessment of a business plan, opportunity, or action. By considering strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, a SWOT analysis is an effective tool to summarize and assess products, services, and actions. Not only does a SWOT analysis help you understand the context of a particular action or problem, but it will also set the stage for action and goal planning.

Using this methodology, you will create a SWOT analysis of the technology you are investigating for your Course Project. As part of your analysis, you will evaluate the following.

  • Strengths:
    • What are the advantages of the technology?
    • How will it positively impact culture and society?
    • What are other potential gains?
  • Weaknesses:
    • What features of the technology may hinder success?
    • What are the limitations of the technology?
    • How does the technology address issues of equity?
  • Opportunities:
    • What are external factors that may contribute to the success of the technology?
    • What social, political, and/or cultural trends may influence reception?
    • What are the opportunities for growth?
  • Threats:
    • What external factors may pose a threat to the success or adoption of the technology?
    • What social, political, and/or cultural trends may influence reception?
    • What are potential hurdles to growth?
