Replying to LO7430 --

Brock Vodden <brock.vodden@odyssey.on.ca> and Joan Pomo
seem to be in agreement on some items and heated on others.

The source of heat appears to be Joan's belief that empowerment
is the answer and Brock is quite pessimistic on the ability of
management to SEE what is not working.

I believe that empowerment can be very effective when properly
nurtured by senior management. But, if Brock is correct, then
empowerment is not likely to flourish in many organizations.

What do others think about empowerment's chances?
