Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



Companies or organizations have a common element: they are all composed by people, who represent their human capital, their vital energy and ensure their capacity of change. Technical devices and infrastructures are important, but, ultimately, it is people who carry out the developments and changes in favour of organizations, so that they may adapt to their environment and become competitive. At economic, technological, market and human resources levels, the globalized context of nowadays is highly competitive and merely reinforces the value of people. Being motivated, empowered and under a dynamic leadership, people become the element that is capable of enhancing the innovative capacity of companies. Empowerment rises here as a tool that allows to unleash the power of people, converting them into partners in the organization.
