From the Paper:

"Thus from the discussion above, it is evident that it is not sufficient for the companies to survive the tough competition by identifying and reviewing their internal issues including strengths as well as weaknesses and their external issues including opportunities and threats (Ferrell et al., Marketing Strategy, 1998). For the adequate, fruitful and productive application of the SWOT analysis in the strategic planning process, it is highly significant for the companies to realize the need to diminish weaknesses as well as the possible threats that include expected and the unexpected hazards (Ferrell et al., Marketing Strategy, 1998). In addition to the above, weaknesses must be considered as possible converters for strengths."
