Businesses of all types operate in their own way. Therefore, they develop and implement their unique strategies. In order to succeed and operate efficiently, enterprises need to develop a long-term development strategy to respond quickly to political and economic changes and attract investments.
Nowadays, modern small and medium-sized businesses in Ukraine are facing numerous challenges. This situation is caused not only by economic and political instability in the country, but by the underdeveloped system of strategic analysis in enterprises. Most experts abroad use the SPASE Analysis method to develop a strategy and comprehensive assessment of the external and internal environment of small and medium-sized enterprises.
