“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.”

Coca-Cola 

The Coca-Cola Company (TCCC) is a leading manufacturer, distributor and marketer of non-alcoholic beverage concentrates and syrups, in the US. TCCC has a strong brand name and brand portfolio. Business-Week and Interbrand, a branding consultancy, recognized Coca Cola as the number one brand in their top 100 global brands ranking in 2007. The Business Week-Interbrand valued Coca Cola brand at $65,324 million in 2007. TCCC ranks well ahead of its close competitor, Pepsi, which was ranked 22 with a brand value of $12,888 million. The company's strong brand value facilitates customer recall and allows Coca-Cola to penetrate markets. However, the company is threatened by intense competition, which could have an adverse impact on the company's market share.
