You have been appointed as the new environmental manager for Microsoft. In a blog post to your key stakeholders, discuss using environmental management as a competitive advantage.

Could you make a comment on a classmate discussion? Microsoft has been a leading software company for many years. Our ability to continue the legacy will depend on the environmental strategy moving forward. Environmental activism has increasingly become necessary in this day and age. One notable change was to our data centers. “Our objective is to transform the energy supply chain of our data centers toward greater efficiency and reduced environmental impact. By bringing together the power plant with the data center, we are actually simplifying the power distribution infrastructure and improving efficiency in the distribution of power” (Wilcox, M. 2014). This strategy will motivate us to set goals that are bigger in the future. We must sustain current actions while continuing to find new ways to tackle environmental issues and concerns.

Next, download the file Sample Data ( attached) Prepare a chart similar to the one in the downloaded file to indicate whether the correlation between Variables A and B were found to be positive, negative, or minimal. Provide explanation and justification for your decisions.
In your own words, explain what it means if the correlation of 2 variables is positive, negative, or minimal (close to 0), and give an example of each.
What do you deduce from the correlations?
What are the implications for Big D Incorporated regarding their client in the outdoor sporting goods?
What are the implications for the penetration into the indoor sporting goods market?
Also, how can you use the correlation tools to identify the variables in the research toward the expansion into the indoor sporting goods market?
