PESTEL analysis (one page)
PESTEL analysis is used to conduct a structured investigation of the external environment in which your team or organization operates.
This easy-to-use tool helps you considere the political, economic, social, technological, environmental (ecological), and legal environment. Use it during the early planning phases of your project, including when conducting a gap analysis.
The results of the PESTEL analysis may be used to inform the decisions about the desired future state as well as plans for individuals and teams affected by the change. If conducted prior to a SWOT analysis, the results of the PESTEL analysis can provide insights that you can then include as opportunities and threats.
Useful planning tool that you can use to identify and document strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats relating to your project.
Conducting a SWOT analysis prompts you to consider both the positives and shortcomings of the current situation, which are used to identify the desired state and what is needed to achieve it. You can then use these findings to assist in planning change management activities for your project.
Environmental forces analysis
Helps you identify and prepare for the external forces that may impact the success of your project.
This tool guides you to consider these factors:
- Market conditions
- Customer demands
- Stakeholder needs
- Regulatory environment
- Availability of raw materials
This analysis is similar to a PESTEL analysis, however it also encourages you to consider what actions that you will start, stop, or do differently in order to support the success of the project.
An environmental forces analysis is useful at any phase of a change and may also provide helpful insights as a regular business practice. The results (and the tool itself) can also be used during ongoing strategic planning as a reminder of the need to be aware of how the environment is continually changing
