Having arrived on this page you have probably surfed the Internet and scoured books and journals in search of the history of SWOT Analysis .

And along these lines is the threat that you as the leader might lack the self-awareness or courage to look yourself in the mirror and conduct a honest, self-reflective SWOT analysis in the first place.
