“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.”

It operates CDMA networks in over 360 metropolitan markets including341 of the 349 largest US metropolitan areas. Strong market position in wireless business enhances the brand image of the company and serves as an entry barrier. Industry consolidation however has created rivals, who have the market power to stop Sprint Nextel from achieving its objectives.
