Thanks for this article. That is really good advice. The sad thing is that I have seen many bad delegators and very few excellent ones. But these were the ones who made me deliver my best results and I liked working with them!"
Another thing I like about the SWOT is that it is a great tool for structuring, evaluating, and summarizing information. However, there seem to be some problems with the practical application. I have seen many people who have difficulties with the distinction between internal and external factors. They rather categorize identified factors into “good for us” and “bad for us”, followed by some more or less intuitive allocation to strength or opportunity (if “good for us”). "
Lyceum, Thanks for your comment. This is a guest article on our website; hence I am not the author. However, I guess most businesses do well without caring about best practices. They just find out what works for them and go with it. This article is about the risk for businesses that blindly follow the advice of consultants who try to sell them best practices that work for others. A company I worked for tried to copy the workforce structures of a profitable competitor, i.e. how many people work in which department. It was a complete disaster. "
