Question Description


In the context of public and nonprofit organizations working in international environments, understanding the opportunities and challenges that an organization might face is vital to the organization’s ability to accomplish its mission and fulfill its mandates. Bryson (2018) offers techniques for carrying out a strengths-weaknesses-opportunities-challenges (threats) (SWOC/T) analysis for the organization.

Write a SWOC/T analysis of a chosen public or nonprofit organization (preferably within an international context).


This week, the following crisis has unfolded: LaPrensa, Nicaragua’s largest newspaper, just published a story about Masachapa’s mayor, Maria Gutierrez, accusing Mayor Gutierrez of misappropriation of public monies and other acts of corruption. While the mayor’s office denies all charges, this story has cast a dark cloud over the town and might jeopardize the RMP altogether. This week, you are asked to elaborate on a strengths-weakness-opportunities-challenges and threats (SWOC/T) analysis for the town of Masachapa.

To prepare for this Assignment:

Review Week 5 information in the Virtual City: Revitalizing Masachapa Project multimedia.

Review Chapter 5 in Bryson (2018).

Consider the town of Masachapa’s internal and external environments in order to perform a SWOC/T analysis for the RMP.

The Assignment (3–4 pages):

Elaborate on a SWOC/T analysis for Masachapa’s RMP.

Your analysis should address internal and external environmental assessments.

Using the knowledge gained over the first 5 weeks of the course, assess the impact of this external shock on the RMP; provide guidance for “next steps” to be taken, and explain your reasoning for how to manage this crisis.

In this exercise, you may consider preparing background reports on external forces affecting the town’s RMP (e.g., potential customers, donor agencies, lenders, other collaborators) with similar reports on internal forces (e.g., local town officials, local citizen groups).

Support your Application Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. Use APA style for this and all assignments.

SWOC/T Analysis for the Town of Masachapa

Institution Affiliation




The town of Masachapa has its strengths and weaknesses. There are also opportunities
that can be pursued to improve the town and challenges/threats that have to be dealt with to
prevent problems from arising. A strengths, weakness, opportunities, challenges, and threats
(SWOC/T) analysis will help analyze the town’s internal and external environment (Bryson,
2018). Data from the analysis will be instrumental in strategic planning for the Revitalizing
Masachapa Project (RMP). It will help identify the areas that require a keen focus on the
improvement of the town. A SWOC/T analysis will also aid in assessing where the town is at and
what needs to be done to achieve the desired future (Bryson, 2018).

attracts tourists (Walden University, n.d.). Tourism is becoming a significant source of revenue
for the town and investment in the town’s infrastructure will aid attract more tourists. Another
strength that Masachapa has is its traditional fishing industry. The town has in the past generated
good revenue from the fishing industry. The Pacific Ocean is a rich source of fishes. The demand
for fish in the town and other areas is high; thus, the potential for growth of the industry. Another

example, 60 percent of the town is connected to running water and sanitation (Walden
