Project Development Gaps

SWOT Analysis
The SWOT analysis section of your Project Charter will help you to focus on how your project will benefit your target population, organization, and those served. It can help you identify areas of strength to leverage when undertaking your project, as well as potential hurdles or roadblocks that could pose a challenge. By completing a SWOT analysis, you will have a better picture of the environment that you will be working in once you start your project.
Additionally, as we continue moving toward completing the Doctoral Project Charter, now is an opportune time to schedule appointments with your project support team. Your team may include:
• Consultants, such as the Capella Writing Center coach, a statistician, a reference librarian, the IRB.
• Practicum site stakeholders.
• Your faculty member.
The purpose of these appointments is to review your progress to date and identify any project development gaps.
As you may have surmised, you will move on to writing the SWOT Analysis section of the Project Charter this week.
