Campo religioso português. Análise externa e interna

Translated title of the contribution: Portuguese religious field. External and internal analysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



This article aims to analyse the Portuguese religious field, focusing on the Catholic Church and applying external analysis and internal analysis, according to the business method of SWOT analysis. External analysis examines the contextual environment, the transactional environment, threats and opportunities, attractiveness, and structure. The internal analysis examines resources and their evolution, products/services available, as well as weaknesses and strengths. Finally, the success of the Catholic Church is questioned based on the concepts of strategy, critical success factors and core competences, concluding by the multiplicity of realities within the Catholic Church, due to the variety of central competences of each ecclesial entity.
