Management Case It was a warm summer morning. As usual, Sheila the agent from Massive Crush Gratin Bank arrived in the famous fish market of Bumpier to collect the daily deposits from women selling fish. Sheila started collecting the amount from Sangria and moved on to the next customer soon. When she reached Material, Malaria started crying loudly and touching Sheila’s feet for help.
