Suppose you manage the buyers at AllRoad and you have been asked to help determine the requirements for a new vendor selection information system. As you think about those requirements, you wonder how much autonomy you want your employees to have in selecting the vendors and products to sell. You can develop a system that will make the vendor/product selection automatically, or you can build one that allows employees to make that selection. Explain how this characteristic will impact:
a. The skill level required for your employees.
b. The number of employees you will need.
c. Your criteria for hiring employees.
d. Your management practices.
e. The degree of autonomy for your employees.
f. Your flexibility in managing your department.
