Let us learn the steps right away.

Step 1: Create the 4 quadrants

Go to Auto shapes menu and pick the ‘Rounded rectangle’ tool. Hold the ‘Shift’ tab to create a square with rounded corners.

Right click on the square and go to ‘Size and Position’ option. Change the Angle of rotation to 45°:

Make three more copies of the shape and arrange them as four quadrants as shown below:

Make sure that the squares are aligned properly and distributed with equal distance.

Step 2: Add the finishing touches

Now, it is time to make the squares look beautiful. Click on each of the squares and apply a quick style of your choice:

When you add some sheen and enter relevant text, your SWOT template chart gets ready:

Since the angle of rotation of the squares is altered, you can’t enter text directly into the squares. This will make the text appear in awkward angles. So, we enter the text separately by using ‘text box’ tool in auto shapes menu. The kite shape of the squares makes it easy for us to fit in longer text.

Variation of SWOT template chart:

There is no ‘one way’ to create a SWOT chart. Likewise, there is no one way to shade the squares. You can choose to shade all the squares in one color and differentiate a specific square with a different shade as shown here:

Once you learn the basic method, you can come up with your own variations.
