Pasco County SWOT
Overview
SWOT

In anticipation of the update to the County’s Strategic Plan, we would like to gather your thoughts and feedback on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that we face as a community.  It is also very important that we learn from you, our residents, what you would like to see in the next chapter for Pasco County. 

To that end, w
e will be conducting several community meetings throughout the summer and hope to see you there!  Please refer to the schedule listed below for an opportunity to participate in this initiative or download the SWOT Flyer for additional details and the schedule.

What is a SWOT Analysis?

SWOT analysis, is study undertaken by an organization to identify its internal strengths and weaknesses, as well as its external opportunities and threats.

Conducting a 
SWOT analysis will allow us to identify:

  • Strengths: Internal elements that give us an edge or competitive advantage. These can be unique assets, skills, or resources that we can use to our benefit.
  • Weaknesses: Internal elements that hinder our ability to reach optimal performance and prevent us from reaching our goals. The goal is to make improvements to these.
  • Opportunities: External circumstances and potential situations that can be used or exploited to benefit us. They are beyond our control but we can make the most of them.
  • Threats: External circumstances that pose a threat to our current or future ability to achieve what we want to. We must mitigate or avoid these potentially damaging effects.

The SWOT analysis will allow us to realize and organize the relevant data necessary for the furtherance of the Strategic Plan FY20/21. Knowing our combined strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats will enable us to identify objectives that are important, to you and others, in our community so that we can properly achieve those specific goals. 

The outcomes of the analysis will help in creating predetermined methodologies by which we can clearly demonstrate and measure our successes. This last benefit will provide us with the requisite information we will need to formulate the next strategic plan, as we commit to continual improvement both now and in the future.

 


Who Can Participate?

Participants will include citizens and county-wide stakeholders within specific segments so that we can gain the widest perspective of ideas and opinions possible. Come and join us and participate in the upcoming meetings and share your thoughts with other community members!
