Identifying your skillset (Article)

How does someone identify their skills and what they know?

In Project Management, we learn something called a SWOT Analysis. A SWOT Stands for (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats). Project Managers normally do this to identify whether the project that they are about to begin (i.e: a new building / a new business) is feasible in the long run. I suggest you strongly to create a SWOT Analysis not for a business but for yourself.

You don't need to do this in a professional way, just get a piece of paper and a pencil.

  1. Identify what are the strengths that you have and write them down. (Do not include the skills you are hoping to learn in the next 6 months and stuff)

  2. Identify the weakenesses you have within yourself that you stop you from success (Eg: If you don't know how to code, and you want to start a tech startup, you better find yourself a co-founder with tech background)

  3. Identify the competitive opportunities you have when compared to others in the same arena. If you want to start a agriTech startup, and you have 5+ years of experience or a Phd in Agriculture, that's a advantage you have.

  4. The threat thing is not going to validated for a person. In Projects a threat is like a natural disaster (floods / hurricanes). But you can draw yourself to a position and your business to hypothesis like the Covid-19 situation and identify how you would react to this kind of a situation.

Let's draw a SWO for the 19 year old Bill Gates who was just starting up. (Eliminated Threats because I don't think they work with humans)

Strengths

  • Highly Skilled at Computer Coding

  • Highly Passionate about where technology is headed

  • Extream ability to focus and excel in a competitive environment

  • Achieved 1590 out of 1600 in the SAT test

  • Best in Mathematics

Opportunities

  • Network of Harvard

  • Undergrad at Harvard University

  • The technology is created by the young inventors at the time

  • Anyone with a great idea had lots of press coverage and ability to change the world

Weaknesses

  • Has to complete the degree at Harvard (Or dropout?)

  • Don't know what people to work with

  • Extreamly weak on identifying the right set of skills and people needed to make a team
