More important information about the assignment requirements: –

What is its impact on the company?
2-in SWOT part, it must be in a table format,
In each of the strength, opportunities, weakness, threats, you have to prioritize the points, for example, if you mentioned 6 points for strength, then you have to number these 6 points from the most strength to the last strength… and you have to do prioritizing in each of the other columns as well.
