According to the APICS dictionary, employee empowerment is the practice of giving nonmanagerial employees the responsibility and the power to make decisions regarding their jobs or tasks. Empowerment has its roots in lean management, where employees are empowered to stop the production line if they detect a quality problem. The logic is to stop producing defective products and immediately initiate problem-solving.
