Your friend, Suzie Whitson, has designed a new type of outdoor toy that helps children learn basic concepts such as colors, numbers, and shapes. Suzie’s product will be targeted for two groups: day care centers in warm climates and home school programs for which few activity-intensive programs aim at toddlers’ developmental processes. Suzie has come to you for help in getting her idea off the ground. She has never managed a business before and is not sure what functions she will need to perform to make her venture successful.
