Strengths Since the year 1965, Toshiba has got various product manufacturers in different regions worldwide. The manufacturers include Toshiba America Business Solutions, The Toshiba America Nuclear Energy Corporation, the Toshiba International Corporation and the Toshiba America Information Systems. All these manufacturers enable the organization to compete effectively in the market. Toshiba also provides a broad number of goods and services to the market which ranges from both electronics and all PC and laptop accessories. These products suit the consumers accordingly and are affordable. It also utilizes its profits perfectly hence enhancing a high quality of its goods that they produce. The corporation manages its products through advertisements via the use of online media and also print media which has a good number of audience. Also, they usually update their website showing what is new and what they offer to the customers making them more reliable and convenient. Toshiba has a massive employee of about 200,000 in various countries which enables the company to provide better attendance and service to its customers globally. It also has a large number of exclusive rights mostly in the US. TOSHIBA CORPORATION INC. 10 Weaknesses The corporation has a huge debt that portrays a negative view of both the investors, customers and also the financial spot of the company.

Another weakness is that it has a very specific and limited market which is mostly electronics and computer accessories.

Opportunities 1) The Toshiba Corporation uses current and up to date technology in bringing up quality products and services to its consumers. 2) They also take into account the increasing demand for the health care products and building systems 3) Their inventory of NAND flash is used in smartphones and tablets today. 4) Through the use of the internet, they manage their activities online. 5) They can also interact with their customers online hence online retailing. Threats 1) Stiff competition from various groups like Hitachi and Fujitsu which use modern technology in producing their goods. 2) The Economic delay is always affecting them in meeting the demand for their goods and services. 3) Rapid technological modification that has occurred need to some assessment TOSHIBA CORPORATION INC. 11 Conclusion As a manager of Toshiba a leading company in the electronic market, I will take into consideration bringing up new products that will meet the needs of the customers.
