Abstract (English):

In strategic management, strategy analysis includes an analysis of a company's strategic position. In particular, the PESTEL framework serves to analyze a company's macroenvironment, i.e., the political, economic, social, technological, ecological, and legal factors that influence a company's strategic position. In this paper, we demonstrate a modeling tool for PESTEL analysis implemented in MetaEdit+ using iStar 2.0 notation. Semantic technologies then serve to infer new knowledge from PESTEL models, namely the opportunities and threats that a company faces.

Keywords: strategic management, environmental analysis, SWOT, business modeling, metaCASE tools, CASE tools
