Starbucks SWOT Analysis 

SWOT is sometimes referred to as internal-external analysis.

The acronym SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats.

The first two, Strengths and Weaknesses, are related to a firm’s internal environment, while the last two, Opportunities and Threats, consider its external environment.

Internal strengths and external opportunities are vertically paired as helpful elements, while internal weaknesses and external threats are paired as harmful elements.
