This is an excellent website that explains all of the more common tools used for analysis. The website is very well designed, attractive and engaging. The tools that are included are all that would typically be of interest in and undergraduate strategic management course. The site is most useful in its explanation of each of the tools versus how they are interrelated and and used as part of the overall strategic management process. The site provides links to other resources that provide examples of SWOT analyses and mission statements of a number of well know companies. This website would be very useful if used in conjunction with a case study to actually practice use of the tools.
