A strategic analysis of Shell Plc 2023

Latest posts by Mariam Peyton (see all)

    Shell’s internal and external analysis as well as its business environment reveals quite a number of challenging trends and issues that the group needs to address in order to become a leaner and more efficient organization that can compete against rivals. Some of the recent macro and micro challenges include high inflation, tight competition, restriction on trade-related activities, fluctuations in the prices of crude oil, chemicals, and natural gas, and rising concerns about climate change. 
    As of the first quarter of 2023, Shell has showcased strong operational performance across all divisions operating in oil and gas trading. The group delivered powerful results and operational performance with its earning adjusting to $9.65 billion exceeding the company’s forecast of $8 billion. 
    However the rising concerns about climate change and its effects have greatly led to a fall in its demand and thus offering potentially lower prices for fossil fuels. Climate change also impacts the physical impact of the company’s assets and supply chains. This has led to regulatory measures, resulting in delays of projects or even resulting in them being canceled, possible litigation, and restrictions on the operations among so many others. 
    Many of these challenges are revealed by the 2023 pestle analysis of Shell, clearly highlighting its key threats, risks, and challenges including major political factors affecting Shell as well as key economic, social, technological, and regulatory trends impacting the energy companies. Furthermore, what opportunities are on the horizon for Shell? 
    Shell's SWOT and VRIO analysis answers key questions such as; what are the strengths and weaknesses of Shell? Does it have the resources and capabilities to take advantage of new market opportunities? Recommendations are offered in the report to help Shell sustain its growth and expansion in growth markets despite arising constraints and challenges.
