What do you think would allow the organization to capitalize on its strengths?

Introduction: An EFE matrix summarizes the results of an external audit. Using an IFE matrix to identify and prioritize internal factors fosters communication across functions and allows functional employees to articulate their concerns about the organization’s business condition. An EFE matrix, an IFE matrix, and a SWOT analysis, which identifies the internal strengths and weaknesses and the external opportunities and threats to an organization, are often completed together.

 

Because of increased turbulence in business markets, an external audit is an important part of strategic management. An external audit includes collecting and evaluating information about competitors, technology, and legal, governmental, political, environmental, demographic, cultural, social, and economic trends in the marketplace. Organizations must empower their employees to identify, monitor, forecast, and evaluate external forces. Failure to do so might mean missed opportunities or ineffective strategies. It is important to use the Internet and information technology to gain information about the competition. Using an external factor evaluation (EFE) matrix and competitive profile matrix can help evaluate markets.

 

Organizations also audit their internal strengths and weaknesses, including the major functional areas. The core operations of most organizations include management, marketing, finance, operations, research, and information systems. An internal audit helps ensure an organization’s health and may help establish competitive advantage and strengthen bottom-line performance. To do an internal assessment, strategists identify and evaluate internal strengths and weaknesses and formulate strategies for effectiveness. The process of doing an internal audit is an opportunity for employees throughout the organization to participate in choosing the future of the organization. Involvement in the process can energize and mobilize the enterprise.
