Answers to Case Questions
1. Develop an estimated duration for each activity. Responses should use the list of tasks developed in chapter 4 and include the estimated duration for each task. 2. Using a project start time of 0 (or January 1) and a required project completion time of 180 days (or June 30), calculate the ES, EF, LS, and LF times and total slack for each activity. If your calculations result in a project schedule with negative total slack, revise the project scope, activity estimated durations, and/or sequence or dependent relationships among activities to arrive at an acceptable baseline schedule for completing the project within 180 days (or by June 30). Describe the revisions you made. Responses could be presented in a network diagram or in the schedule table format. The project should finish in 180 days. If the original plan is not completed by 180 days, the responses should describe what tasks were revised to meet the required completion date. 3. Determine the critical path and identify the activities that make up the critical path. Responses can be presented in a list of activity names, highlighted in the network diagram, or highlighted in the schedule table. 4. Produce a bar chart (Gantt Chart) based on the ES and EF times from the schedule in item 2.

Are Enterprenuers Born or Bred - a Potentia Primer

...Are Entrepreneurs Born or Bred? Academics currently debate whether entrepreneurs are born or do they develop with the help of their environment. It is a big debate today and the reason is simple. Governments and think tanks today are struggling with this question because entrepreneurial creativity and innovation leads to a phenomenon at the centre of any economic theory - job creation. Governments want to know whether entrepreneurs can be trained and if they can, what can the government do to advance those skill sets in the systems. If entrepreneurs are born, then what are the factors which influence it? Is good milk and honey the answer? To date there has been no solid, widely applicable correlations between successful entrepreneur and personality traits, which are fixed. However, much is written and known about the behaviour of hundreds of successful entrepreneurs, no theory proves to highlight a particular personality trait of these successful people which can be described as key to their success. Where we read that Virgins Branson’s mother raised them to be “self reliant and responsible…taking control of their destiny”, the same Branson had to learn to use his network. As his magazine business grew, he came to rely on his childhood friend Powell. This turned out to be one of the most fruitful and calculated commercial marriages for Branson. Branson learnt that building a reliable team is as good as being self reliant. Similarly to date there also hasn’t been a......

...1. Background to the problem for the tittle Challenges facing women enterprenuers on accessing microfinance from commercial banks Formulation and appropriate intervention for transforming the women both within and outside their homes has been one of the major precautions of development practitioners at least since mid 1970 (Nchimbi, 2003). A number of factors have been formulated overtime, for example, raising women status, through education, training, access to health and family planning services as well as access to legal counseling. Politically, attempts have been made to raise the proportion of female participants in representative organs. In Tanzania economy the most popular strategy especially since 1990 has been the involvement and participation of women in microfinance programmed to assist Micro and Small Enterprises owners. This enables Small and Medium business owners to have an access to finance from financial institutions so as to raise their capital where necessary (Milgram, 2002). Despite the favorable environment and conditions given to the Women Entrepreneurs’ especially in accessing microfinance from Financial Institutions (FI), the number of those accessing finance in developing countries like Tanzania is still low. This creates a lot of concerns among the stockholders, and hence indicates that there are still problems on women entrepreneurs which result in poor performance of their business. My study therefore will sought to assess the......
