“SWOT is an acronym for the internal Strengths and Weaknesses of a firm and the environmental Opportunities and Threats facing that firm. SWOT analysis is a widely used technique through which managers create a quick overview of a company’s strategic situation. The technique is based on the assumption that an effective strategy derives from a sound “fit” between a firm’s internal resources (strengths and weaknesses) and its external situation (opportunities and threats). A good fit maximizes a firm’s strengths and opportunities and minimizes its weaknesses and threats. Accurately applied, this simple assumption has powerful implications for the design of a successful strategy.”

Johnson & Johnson 

Johnson & Johnson (J&J) is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of health care products, as well as a provider of related services, for the consumer, pharmaceutical and medical devices and diagnostics markets. J&J‘s most diverse businesses and strong sales and marketing capabilities have enabled it to strengthen its financial position. However, the earlier than expected launch of generic Concerta will affect the product sales.
