    a business by tapping into their greatest
    resources, their employees.

    for empowering employees         to
    participate in managerial decision-
    making and improvement activities
    appropriate to their levels in the
    organization.

    operating levels. It's obvious that a
    whole company of skilled and
    capable problem solvers will have a
    distinct competitive advantage over
    an organization with only a few keys
    contributors and an army of drones.
