the weaknesses which company has poor image related to labor practices because this company has image that its workers are not paid fairly and they work more than specified hours and does not get paid which builds a negative image. also company still having low cost manufacturing charges high prices for its shoes and other products.
These are internal factors means Nike company can manage them. for example company can do PR and do CSR activities to improve its negative image into positive one.
Company has factors which are present in external environment and poses threats like emerging markets in foreign countries where the company has not introduced its products like India and Brazil, have the potential to drive future earnings growth.
