A PEST analysis is a tool for exploring the trends, opportunities and threats that your organisation may have to face in the future. It covers four areas: political, economic, social and technological.

You can read more about PEST analyses in this sample of Tools for Tomorrow (PDF, 240KB), our guide to strategic planning.

We’ve started off your analysis by adding some of the key points from The Road Ahead 2018 (PDF, 421KB), our annual analysis for NCVO members of the main drivers shaping the voluntary sector.

Delete the ones that aren’t relevant to you and add any others that you think are important or relevant to you.
