To reach these learning goals, this Assignment guides you through the completion of two critical parts of this project: ● Part 1 – SWOT Analysis ● Part 2 – Evaluation of strategic planning process and related policies/laws

You will finalize both sections of your Unit 5 Assignment and submit as one document to the Dropbox for grading.

Instructions:

Part 1 – SWOT Analysis:

Using the table below, you will apply strategic planning techniques to evaluate selected local, national, and global health issues. You identified these issues in the Unit 3 Looking Ahead. You will expand your analysis of the policies and laws by conducting a SWOT analysis. ● First column: Please use the “Level & Issue” column to note a brief overview of the issue at the particular level. ● Second column: This column does not need editing, as it organizes the rest of the chart by SWOT element. ● Third column: You should list at least three items per SWOT component for each level–one sentence per item will suffice. ● Fourth column: You will integrate the Unit 3 Looking Ahead coursework into this column. ● Fifth column: Notate your sources in this column.
