Empowerment programs swept through corporate America in the last two decades.

The author does a great job of describing self-management in a detailed way using a fictionalised account of BerryWay. This really filled in the gaps I had from reading Reinventing Organizations.
4.5 stars.

While controversial (and I certainly don't agree with all of it), this is one of the most innovative approaches to business management and staff empowerment I have read. Built around the idea that individuals can be truly accountable in their work, Beyond Empowerment is a must read for any business leader looking for new ways to operate.

I would love to see more case studies and practical implementation suggestions.
