These include Porter’s Five Forces and PEST. In Module 4, we will give our attention to one such conceptual tool, SLEPT Analysis, which is a variation – and an extension – of PEST. Similar to PEST, the SLEPT Analysis is utilized by leadership to scan and monitor the remote environment. SLEPT is an acronym that stands for the:Social, Legal, Economic, Political, and Technological remote environmental forces that may affect the organization.Please review the theory of SLEPT analysis at the following page:http://businesscasestudies.co.uk/business-theory/external-environment/slept-analysis.html#axzz2m8aLEn54Next, let’s review the following article related to analysis of the external environment:Makos, J.
