The purpose of this paper is helping businesses to answer the questions of “where are we?” in a practical and beneficial way.

The purpose is to identify the potential of the business by taking into consideration its existing and past performances and problems. In short, this paper helps businesses to identify and evaluate their strategic internal factors by offering them totally a new practical and effective analysis technique
