You received the message below from your manager. Respond in memo format.
I understand you are studying about the marketing environment in your master’s studies. It is really critical that all of us in the firm keep the factors in the marketing environment and their potential impact upon us in mind. I would like you to write a brief memo explaining their importance that I can circulate among the employees. Because most of them are unfamiliar with these ideas, please keep your explanation uncomplicated and straightforward. For illustration purposes, please use two factors that you think will strongly impact our own industry (one in a positive way and one in a negative way) and how our firm could be better positioned to face each of them.
