Company, Industry & Country Analysis

During the course of your country, company and industry research and analysis, you may want to find reports based on particular strategic analysis tools. However, if one is not available, you may need to create your own. Inputs to creating this analysis can come from the Strategic Analysis Tools report from CIMA.

SWOT reports
Analysis of the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats of/to a particular company.

PEST or PESTLE reports
Analysis of the macro environment in which an organization exists. Usually specific to a particular country. Includes Political factors, Economic factors, Social factors; Technological factors (for PEST) along with Legal factors and Environmental factors (for a complete PESTLE analysis.)

Porter's Five Forces

Porter's Five Forces is a model that identifies and analyzes five competitive forces that shape every industry and helps determine an industry's weaknesses and strengths. Five Forces analysis is frequently used to identify an industry's structure to determine corporate strategy. Many of our databases provide the information for these forces; you can then create your own model using this data.
