• Based on two key dimensions

o The IFE total weighted scores on the x-axis o The EFE total weighted scores on the y-axis

Steps for the development of IE matrix 1. Based on two key dimensions IFE and EFE. 2. Plot IFE total weighted scores on the x-axis and the EFE total weighted scores on the y axis 3. On the x-axis of the IE Matrix, an IFE total weighted score of 1.0 to 1.99 represents a weak

internal position; a score of 2.0 to 2.99 is considered average; and a score of 3.0 to 4.0 is strong. 4. On the y-axis, an EFE total weighted score of 1.0 to 1.99 is considered low; a score of 2.0 to 2.99 is

medium; and a score of 3.0 to 4.0 is high. 5. IE Matrix divided into three major regions. Grow and build – Cells I, II, or IV Hold and maintain – Cells III, V, or VII Harvest or divest – Cells VI, VIII, or IX
