Scenarios for Using Business Analysis Tools

When analyzing a business, management will commonly employ a selection of diverse tactics including SWOT analysis and quantitative analysis.

An ERP (enterprise resource planning) system can then be used as one of the many repositories of corporate data that needs to be analyzed.

SWOT analysis outlines a business's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. It involves specifying the objective of the business venture or project and identifying the internal and external factors that impede or assist in achieving that objective.

Quantitative analysis works in financial matters using numerical techniques to plan and execute the next move.
