Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) is a technique that can be utilized in hypothesis testing in situations where there are three or more populations with equal means, or three or more samples with equal means, depending on the experimental design of the test employed. Thoroughly describe some business situations where ANOVA tests can be performed and discuss how the results can impact the operational nature of the firm and how the results will impact the decision-making analysis utilized by the upper level management of the business organization.
