What is this product or company really good at?
Where do we truly excel as an organization?
What are some of our weaknesses?
Are there any areas where our competitors are clearly outperforming us?
What challenges are facing your company?
What challenges might be facing this product?
What lies out there, on the horizon, for us as a company?
Where do we have room to expand in the marketplace?
From there, you and your team can create a plan to move forward.

Think about all the elements in the environment that could cause prejudice to our business (or project, product...).
