    Hi Darcy,

    What you seem to be talking about is a SWOT Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) see link:

    With elements of a creative brief. See link:

    These links should help you organize your findings and add appropriate analysis. Clients often “fall short” in several areas particularly; (1.) not identifying ALL their competitors (2.) believing they are higher in the pecking order than the customers believe and (3.) not seeing the COMPLETE big picture marketplace for their products.

    Hope this helps,

    - Steve
