How to make PowerPoint SWOT analysis diagrams

PowerPoint will open a brand new presentation. Hit Ctrl+A (Cmd), to select all. Then press Delete, to clear your canvas. To help you create your diagram, choose Ruler & Guidelines from the View tab.

Select Insert tab. Highlight the Text Box choice.

Press Shift and drag to create a quadrant.

Double-click this box to open Format Shape. Click the Size & Properties button, which is third from your left. Select Resize shape to fit the text and change it to Do NOT Auto fit. This will preserve the square shape of your box.

To copy an existing text box press Ctrl/Cmd + C. Hit the Ctrl/Cmd + V button to paste another. Hold the Ctrl + C button to select both boxes. Next, choose Format > align > Align Top.

For a total of four boxes, you will repeat the copying/pasting. To convert your diagram into a 2 by 2 diagram, you can use the alignment tools under the Drawing Tools tab.

Start typing text into each box. Highlight the text to highlight and choose Bullet Points formatting from the Home Tab.

Add design flair to your diagram. The Design tab has a wide range of styles you can choose from. This SWOT diagram uses Mesh. Modify the SWOT Diagram by using Format Background.

Just start typing in the text box that corresponds to your quadrant to add titles. In this example the title lines are along the top of the first row, while those on the bottom line run along the bottom. Highlight text alignment options and click the Home tab to change the appearance of the diagram.
