SWOT Analysis Instructions (Spain)

You will complete a SWOT analysis report consisting of 7–8 pages, not including the title page, abstract, or reference page (Turabian Style). You must choose a locale that provides adequate resources for this assignment. In this assignment, you will target the specific situations found within Spain. This assignment will require that you address the following 6 specific areas:

 

SWOT

In short, a SWOT will be an analysis of Spain’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. It may be helpful when looking for your S, W, O, and T to contact someone living in the area you are researching. They can provide a firsthand perspective that your other research may not provide. People usually are willing to share strengths or weaknesses, but they may not be able to share both based on their personal biases, experiences, and situation in life. Make sure your SWOT is balanced and include all information that you have received.

 

Locale

When choosing your locale, make sure that you will be able to find demographic and economic information. You will want to choose an area with which you are familiar or an area where there is obvious need.

 

Economic Situation

You must detail the specific economic situation facing this location. How has the economic shift impacted Spain and how has Spain responded in the last 30 years? Additionally, what initiatives has Spain implemented to revive the economic aspects of Spain? You will need to know Spain and what is going on to be able to create an action plan, but, before you can make suggestions, you must intimately understand the pressures facing the constituents. Part of this section will need to detail what kinds industry Spain emphasizes (industrial, educational, technology).

 

Cultural and Social Situation

You must detail the specific cultural and social situation facing this location. How has the cultural and social shift impacted Spain and how has Spain responded in the last 30 years? Additionally, what initiatives has Spain implemented to revive the social and cultural aspects of Spain? You will need to know Spain and what is going on to be able to create an action plan, but, before you can make suggestions, you must intimately understand the pressures facing the constituents. Part of this section will need to detail what kinds of educational and social policy Spain emphasizes.

 

Legal and Geopolitical Issues

Based on the SWOT analysis and other research, what legal and/or geopolitical issues are facing Spain? Explore your locale and find out if there are lawsuits facing leaders in Spain or geopolitical hot-button issues that will impact future economic development. Keep in mind that the situation your locale may be facing may be more practical than you anticipated.

 

Governmental Atmosphere

How is the government structured in this locale? What is unique or specific about the government in your locale? It may not need to be unique, but it characterizes the atmosphere of the community. Does the government lean left or right, or is it openly pursuing a left or right agenda? Evaluate whether the legislators govern based on their ideological bias or from the center rather than focusing on the best interests of Spain. Explain the structure of the government. Include an organizational chart of the government. Detail the function and role of each individual in the government and summarize how this atmosphere impacts the geopolitical framework in the past and present. Also, discuss the role private business plays in geopolitics. Does the local governing body work closely with businesses or is the relationship strained? Are the geopolitical policies driven by government, business, or both? Are there any public/private partnerships in Spain? If so, fully evaluate the usefulness of such an arrangement. Lastly, assess these issues from a biblical perspective.

 

Action Plan

This is the meat of your assignment. All that you have been writing up until this point has been leading you to this section of the assignment. The action plan is your recommendation for what Spain can and should do to strengthen the geopolitical framework. You are required to think outside of the box. Your plans must be sustainable and pragmatic, and they must address the needs of Spain where Spain is deficient. Now that you know the weaknesses, address them, but make sure that in addressing the weaknesses you are not undermining the strengths. Seize the opportunities and remove the threats. You must think strategically and systematically. You will need to fully justify and substantiate your action plan, and you will need to show how this action plan could and will work within the specific structure of this locale. This is why you have detailed the governmental atmosphere and geopolitical issues. In this section of the paper, you get to be the decision maker, but it must fit within the confines of your chosen country, and your proposal must be fully justified in all points. Ultimately, you are making your case as to why your proposal would be good for your country and lead to growth in the strength of the geopolitical framework.
