4. How much do you think the owner of a business like SMPR needs to know about data communications? Detailed information? General information? Justify your answer.
I think that the owner does need to know a medium amount of knowledge because he needs to be able to handle things wisely. What you know is what you can do.
ALO T of detailed information needs to know by the owner so that if anything goes out of hand he can fix the overall problem. Even the general information is very important, everything is key to know for the owner. He can distribute the information to his peers and managers.

• Why they do it (to better their customers and themselves)
