PROJECT MANAGEMENT:
THE WOOD STOVE STORE

A friend of a friend owns a wood stove store.  She has been contacted to work as a sales agent for a wood stove manufacturer.  As a sales agent, she would visit other store owners to try to persuade them to purchase products from this manufacturer.  She would receive a ten percent commission on every sale.

Your friend knows that you are a business major and presumes that you would have some advice.  Should the offer be accepted?

Consider: What facts do you have?  What reasonable assumptions can you derive from those facts?  Could you draw a Gannt chart to represent the distribution of a wood stove, from product manufacture to the time that the final consumer is finally able to use it for the very first time?
