There is a need to analyze the environment in all organizations, whether you are entering a new organization or to benchmark the existing organization.

The SPELIT POWER MATRIX is intended for practitioners doing a market analysis or diagsis prior to implementing transitions, benchmarking in anticipation of an intervention, and can be used by undergraduate students and seasoned practitioners.
