Harrison was given a written scenario to review. It indicated a product or service to sell; a merchandising decision; a situation involving communications, human relations, economics, or professional development; or a business management consideration.  In the role-play, Harrison accomplished a task by translating what they have learned into effective, efficient, and spontaneous action. Marianne Ireland and Linda Wilson were Harrison’s advisors.
