How does delegation differ from empowerment? And what does this have to do with Agile Excellence? The Agile Excellence series breaks down Agile by Care & Growth and looks at the Modern Agile manifesto to achieve successful teams. Agile teams work with delegation on a daily basis. Thus working towards self-organized, autonomous teams.
Empowerment means “the authority or power given to someone to do something.” While delegation is shifting of authority and responsibility. This is usually a leader or manager to another. These two definitions are very similar. But we can see that empowerment induces an uplifting feeling by using the words “power” and “authority”.
This episode of the Agile Excellence series talks about the 5 steps to empowering individuals and examples of how one might achieve this.
